One other experiment

One other experiment I’ve had in mind recently is tied into something that’s not been working correctly anyway. I just sent this email to the folks who had been getting posts by email:

As I’ve mentioned before, something seems to have gone terribly awry
with the topica list in terms of getting emails when I post to the blog.
It’s been nearly a month and no sign of the trouble being fixed, so I’ve
taken matters into my own hands. Actually, this is something I’ve been
wanting to do for awhile. I’ve created a mail list of my own, which all
the blog posts will be directed to, and which subscribers can post their
own thoughts, ideas, comments, etc.

Now, don’t worry, I’m keeping the list in a moderated status, so
anything sent to the list will have to be approved by me first.
Basically I’m trying to walk the fine line between trying something a
little different, and trying to keep it from getting out of hand and
turning people off. We’ll see how it goes. My hope is that as I roll out
the new name next week, that this mail list becomes a place to share
ideas among helpdesk, desktop support or any IT folks who support
end-users on a day-to-day basis.

If you think this list might be something you’d have an interest in joining, or just want to get the blog posts by email, feel free to send an email to blog-subscribe at this domain.
