Hi everyone. One of the consequences of NESCent closing is that its mailing lists will be going away in the coming months. I was part of 2 working groups that maintained email lists. The 2 lists include pretty much everyone who has attended a hackathon at NESCent (wg-phyloinformatics, which began in 2006, and hip, which began in 2011).
We considered just migrating to a new non-NESCent email list, but an alternative would be to encourage current list members to sign up on phylobabble. If we could start a topic on phyloinformatics, then presumably users could set up a feed and it would have the same immediacy as an email list.
What do you think? I welcome your thoughts on that idea.
