Hi *,
I had an idea about increasing the amount of discussion on this low
traffic list that has a broad purpose (like what Monque said). This list
gets the ocassional boost in contributions when someone posts a question
that awakens some sympathetic chord in the subscribers. So the fewer
their are such questions, the fewer responces. So here is the idea: If
the infamous 'someone' were to think of a 'resonant' topic each month I
think it would lead to more chance for more dialogue. So if 'someone'
were to think of making each month about some topic of interest to
DW("topic of the month"), this would create a point around which people
can respond but it would not disallow other questions ("supportive,
friendly gnu questions and answers"). Maybe this months topic might have
been "differences around the world wrt womens tech job hiring".
