Re: Topics for discussion

Dear Marina,

Thank you for your kind words.  However, while it It is true that I
started the list, soon afterward, Dan Ellis, currently an Associate
Professor of the Department of Electrical Engineering at Columbia
(http://www.ee.columbia.edu/~dpwe/) agreed to run it and has been
doing so in a gentle, hands-off way ever since.  It's he who keeps the
membership lists in order, and makes sure everything is working
properly.  We should offer him our heartfelt thanks for the success of
the list.
