I do not see this as a permanent circumstance. Perhaps the idea is only slightly ahead of its time. I have known about NAFEX for many years but only just recently became aware of this e-list. Pointing out that few NAFEX members are as yet participating is not "negative", just reality but not any reason to discard a good idea(s) that could have great potential in the near future.

I think there are at least two differnet ideas being put forward. One seems to boil down to putting POMONA online... The other(s) is providing Online educational oportunties more or less independent of NAFEX and POMONA. And I think a few other ideas as well(?)

I would be very interested in getting a better picture of what exactly you have in mind. If it is a project not directly related to NAFEX and you fell it would be inapropriate to continue discussion about it on THIS e-list why not start another e-list? It's free and I think many here would be very interested.

PS in regard to Dan's reference to "Echo Development Notes" they are not only available through e-mail, back issues are also available online. This might be something worth examining in relation to putting POMONA Online.
