I understand (from Susan Mernit, via Daniel Walker of the dtp-l list)
that there's an Electronic Publishing list, slanted a bit toward
education issues. I quote...

COSN has set up a new list for discussing electronic publishing. To

Here is the list's "welcome" message

- --------------------------------------------------

Welcome to EPUb, the list for discussing how increased opportunities
for electronic publishing are affecting publishers, teachers, students
and schools.

EPUB is a COSN discussion list; as such; let's follow some basic COSN

1) No flaming

2) No commercial announcements, even those related to electronic

3) No NEWS announcements--let's let Net-Happenings be the list for all
ed news, and keep this one as a discussion list.

4) A list for everyone-- As more and more educators and publishers
explore electronic tools, the same questions will recur. Let's not
make new people feel bad for being where some of us where a few weeks
or years ago. As the list evolves, we can develop a FAQ that will help
answer some questions; meanwhile, let's share in a positive spirit or
get off the list. Let the discussion begin, and welcome!

The simplest way to stop a flamewar is to breathe deeply, swallow
your bile and just LET an idiot have the last word. - me
