Hi Chip!  Could you forward this to the Tesla list?


I'm about to start up an email list for hobby-science.  Feel free to check
it out.  (the message traffic is nearly zero, since I just started
announcing it this week.)

I have yet to encounter any good general-experimentation lists for
amateurs, and I've found that the SAS/WebX forum and the newsgroup
alt.amateur.science don't offer quite the same thing as an e-list. 
(...and I *still* miss that old email forum of long ago that the SAS was

If you know of others who would be interested in such things, feel free to
pass this along.  The more the merrier.

  list messages: SCICLUB-LIST-at-ESKIMO-dot-com
  list commands: SCICLUB-LIST-REQUEST-at-ESKIMO-dot-com

Sciclub-list will be run in "unmoderated" mode, but with a set of rules
and a moderator (me) to make them stick.  See the above website for the
proposed rules.  I intend that the group will be appropriate for families
(no instructions for extremely hazardous experiments), and oriented
towards openminded or "wet" skepticism (the really weird stuff has its own
forums already.)

Sciclub-list will have no official connection with the Society for Amateur
Scientists, although I hope that plenty of SAS people will want to hop on
board.  :) 

Since the group is new, I can't predict if the messages/day will grow
intolerably large.  If you'd only like to receive collected messages every
few days, rather than a constant dribble of messages in realtime,
"sciclub-digest" is alternative to "sciclub-list."  If you'd rather just
check out the messages every week or so, I'll also keep an archive of the
raw message-stream on the website above.
