The forum was set up as an experiment to see whether a self-sustaining forum-style site would work. This one, at least, has not. With regret, I’m shutting it down.

Closing the Forum

I created the forum at in the hope that a self-sustaining conversation could take place there, with no one in particular designated to keep it going. With just a few postings in the past six months, it seems safe to say that that didn’t happen.

I’m taking down the forum and for now redirecting links to it here. I’ll retain the URL for now and will be open to making it available for some community-serving non-commercial purpose.

Discussion via email, or on the XP list, is welcome. Thanks!
