0) NEW! Volunteers
John Paul Fullerton <> has graciously created a web
page explaining how to use the Web search engines (e.g. Lycos and
AltaVista) to find material which has been on the Learning-org list. See
his search page at

I'm looking for volunteers who would create a "tips" sheet and reply to
questions from subscribers about participating in learning-org from these
environments: AOL, Compuserve, Eudora, Notes, Microsoft Network, etc.

1) How to get the "info file" about learning-org
For information on Learning-Org -- the internet discussion of the
Learning Organization --

Via the Web, the URL is <> and the last
three characters are "tilde-el-oh," not "dash-one-zero."

Or, email our faithful robot,

The subject line is ignored; begin your msg with these two

info learning-org

If you have trouble, please *forward* whatever indicates that there is a
problem to the host at <>

2) How to spread the word
Please copy the few lines in #1 above and pass them on to anyone
interested. Please do not give someone just the list address -- that's
*only* for msgs to be distributed. (People sending "subscribe" requests
to the list address is a real problem here. Please help me avoid these.)

3) How to leave the list (either temporarily or permanently)
First, notice whether you are on the regular list (15-30 msgs a day) or
the Digest list (2-4 long Digests a day). In either case, to leave the
learning-org list send email to

The subject line is ignored. In the body of the message
unsubscribe learning-org

To come back, send the same message with
subscribe learning-org

...instead of unsubscribe.

If you're on the digest list, then

...instead of learning-org (don't forget the hyphens!)

If you get back "not a subscriber..." when you try to leave, check if you
have the right list (learning-org vs. learning-org-digest).

If your email address has ** changed **, you'll have to write me; tell me
the old address you want removed.

4) Who to contact if any problems
Email me anytime with comments, questions or problems at the "official
host address" which is:


(If you send to my personal address, that's OK too.)

5) Is there an archive? an index?
Yes, there's an archive. Complete instructions are in the info file (see
#1 above). The best way to see archived msgs is with a Web browser.

Many of our messages are indexed in the Lycos and AltaVista catalogs of
the Web. There's a pointer on the Learning-Org web pages.

6) My Role as Host
I review all msgs for relevance to the list and for tone consistent with
the learning organization principles we are trying to live.

I hope you're enjoying the learning-org list!
