I've expressed in the past my opinion of what I thought we should
and shouldn't be discussing on the i.a.e.p. list.

After seeing a few days of activity, I now have a very different
view: not only I don't mind if people discuss very diverse topics,
I think it's a healthy thing.

Now I see how being an "interdisciplinary" group creates lots
opportunities for learning from each other and create a closer
collaboration.

The usual argument of how there would be too much traffic or such a
low signal to noise ratio is moot: by skipping the threads I don't
care about, I don't waste *any* time on them.
