Chronicle's Forum Offerings

LISTSERVs are educational but can fill the Inbox quickly. If you like the academic exchange without the emailing, a good resource is the set of Forums at The Chronicle of Higher Education web site.

Academic life is covered in sections like Cafe and Careers, and a quick scan of the number of posts orients you to the major topics. Among the minor areas is a Cafe forum called Tech Talk for Befuddled Academics. I recommend it.

For a sense of the who in the forums, scroll to the bottom of the index page for some current and past statistics. (You can read forum discussions as a guest. If you log in, you'll become one of the statistics.)
