Re: Gil's question of whether this list is dead or not...  I certainly

Re: Gil's question about whether another list should be formed:  I
believe WedTech provided a decent fork for two particular types of
threads:  1) announcements/discussions of the nitty gritty tech details
of programming languages (usually JS or a variant); 2) items primarily
(or exclusively) of interest to people living IN Santa Fe.
