This Bionet discussion service will be turned of in April, next month,
due to new Indiana University policy to remove scientist-run services
such as this one. This discussion network seeks a new supporting
organization for http://www.bio.net/
Discussion of Bionet's future can proceed on the list Bionet.general,
email: bioforum from net.bio.net, or see this Google Groups copy,
which should survive the IU shutdown.
Suggestions and comments may also be emailed to me at
gilbert.bionet from gmail.com, 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.
