Dear Web-footed Friends,

below is the announcement for the maillist for discussions
specific to the Globewide Academy Network [GNA] Web, a campus-wide
information system which actually comprises (almost) the whole campus
itself, since GNA is a purely virtual university. The state and
maintenance of the GNA Web is critical for the success of GNA as a
network enterprise, and we invite every interested user to help us
restructuring it - foremost by telling us

- what you had expected to see (but couldnt find) on our campus
- what you think how we could improve on what we have

(or even simply why you like what you see there :-)

This group is meant as a GNA-specific extension to the working group(s)
formed at the WWW conference workshop "Teaching & Learning with WWW",
since a lot of GNA Web activities is not only about education, but virtual
management of a fairly big globewide organization. GNA hopes to be
the first place though to integrate the excellent work done on the Web
in its prototype courses.

================ send to gna-web-talk, gna-talk

There is a new hypertextified maillist from the GNA Web Users Group [WUG]
now, which you may subscribe to if you want to be part of the
reorganization of the GNA Web tree.
To subscribe, send Email to listproc@gna-lists.unam.mx with the
only line
SUBSCRIBE gna-web-talk <your name>
in it.
If you only want to get something on the GNA web, send the document
you want added to the Web with a note about where you want to put
the document to gna-web-request@uu-gna.mit.edu
If you want to address the main GNA webmasters directly to point
out a flaw or comment on something which doesnt require discussion,
you have the option to send mail to gna-webmasters@tsun.desy.de

Within this week, minutes from the first meeting of the WUG will be
posted. A provisional Web page is at URL


(under construction) with links to transcripts and WWW archives
(in the future).

The list is fully HTML-ized: it is suggested that you try to
choose meaningful 'Subject:' headerlines when posting to this list,
since this will make WWW-archivation much more useful. Examples:

Subject: ABOUT - <something about the list itself>
Subject: ACCESS - <something about access methods/problems>
Subject: SERVER - <httpd discussion>
Subject: ANNOUNCE - <to announce>
Subject: HTML - <hypertext style discussions,page layout>


Thanks a lot to Diego Zamboni and Mike Pitt (GNA Mailing Group) for helping
to get this list started!
