Re: [Killietalk] Love the aka ; but. . .
I'd like to apologize for all of my marketing jargon in advance.
Lists and forums/archives are really two different mediums (unless you use a
web browser for mail, which would make them more similiar). A list is a
"push" medium like radio or TV while a forum is a "pull" medium like a
newspaper, book or magazine.
I like killietalk, it's my personal version of fish talk radio, and if
something I don't care for is on I can simply change the channel (my delete
key). For the record I'm addicted to NPR, too.
For research, I usually start with the act/win archives before I ask
questions. That's like a trip to the library in the real world. This is the
most direct route when I know the question I want to answer.
Both the list and the archives have the advantage of age on the AKA forum.
They've long since reached the 'tipping point', or better yet critical mass,
that make them a big part of the killie world. The forum is young and just
doesn't have the same amount of information or cameraderie (yet).
I agree with an earlier poster in that using an email application rather
than a browser to read killietalk will make it easier to select what one
reads. Otherwise, go to where the information you want is, whether it be the
archives or the list "live and in person"
My .02 and then some,
