RATIONALE: rec.gardens.bamboo

To put bamboo enthusiasts at all levels of knowledge and experience in touch
with one another and other bamboo organizations worldwide and to consolidate
information about bamboo. To promote, share and diversify uses of bamboo. To
promote and research bamboo generally. There is currently no one Usenet
newsgroup available for the discussion of bamboo. A Deja News Power Search
for March 6, 1999 to June 6, 1999 returned 3965 hits. In reviewing the first
500 articles there were 202 on subject. Using this as a representative
sample of the entire data base, there would be 1601 hits on subject (17 per
day-over 90 days). In addition there are several mailing lists and forums
about bamboo. These are, for the most part, regional services. A newsgroup
for bamboo would not be a replacement for any existing services but would
complement them and help consolidate the world-wide interest in bamboo. The
support group for rec.gardens.bamboo is world wide in makeup and the
majority of the members are not involved with any of the existing services.
This leads us to believe the world wide usage of such a newsgroup will be
well received and increase in usage as the world wide bamboo community
learns of its existence.
