Default Bionet discussion lists will be turned off this week

This Bionet discussion service will be turned off at Indiana University
at the end of this week, 6 April. This discussion network seeks a new
supporting organization for

I will provide a public web archive of the past 30 years of
messages, at a new home for, on (NSF funded)
or/and at (dgg funds, or maybe with your contributions).
New messages will be suspended; I will take a look at cost/effort
to restart it, but by preference would like others to help.

Discussion of Bionet's future can proceed on Bionet.general,
via this Google Groups copy, which should survive the IU shutdown.!forum/bionet.general

Suggestions and comments may also be emailed to me at
, please request anonymity if desired.

A host organization that will maintain or expand this unique resource
is sought. Suggestions include (1) an established biology-oriented
center that already maintains public E-mail lists with the popular
GNU-Mailman system used by Biosci; (2) open-access science
communication credentials; (3) possible re-location to an Old World
home, in Europe or Asia-Pacific, as Bionet receives continuing high
use from these areas. The alternative of a new institutional home for
Bionet will be up to group members, with options of commercial
offerings like Google Groups, Twitter, FaceBook, and others.
