Hi All,

I'm not sure what this list is for anymore?  I would like to see some
'communication' between 'communicators' about 'communication' instead it
seems to be a manifesto of PR happenings.  Can we use it to talk about
science communication or not?  This is the third time I've tried to
communicate something on this list.  Let's see if it gets through??
