g's interpretation of Bob's post:
<interpretation>Yes! I volunteer!</interpretation>
As I noted, little to no benefit. Perhaps I should have clarified,
little to no benefit, more work for volunteers. The website + mailman
email lists cover 99% of what we need as a group.
If someone's looking for make work projects that use a funky feed to
keep things all social-media, then replace the email lists with a
discussion forum and pull feeds off of the discussion forum. "Last 10
posts" feed sounds a lot more useful if you want feeds. More useful,
and not a fad which Twitter is. But no, I'm not volunteering for any of
