In fact, I am wondering if we need a list at all. As far as I can see, most
of the participants in CASLL are interested in looking at different sites.
I also like your idea about discussing one site at a time.
If we decide to go this route, then I would only ask that people not
broadcast the location and password outside of our net, only because the DE
folks and the pubishers of the textbook that I am using (parts of the text
appear on the site) have asked that it be a password protected site for
Also I will be preparing a statement about the context and intent of the
course prior to putting the address up--sort of a protective measure.
How does this sound? Does anyone object and still want me to create a more
limited list? I don't mind doing it (easy using Outlook Express or Eudora),
but simply publishing the address would be easier.
