MAP-EXTRA: NEAT STUFF TO CHECK OUT


     "(E)rror of opinion may be tolerated where reason is left
      free to combat it." -- Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural
      Address (1801)

     "Jefferson obviously was never on Usenet." -- Patrick Crispen


The workshop is rapidly drawing to a close. Before I turn you loose
on the Net, there are a few neat sites and resources that I want to
recommend:


EDUPAGE

     EDUPAGE is a "summary of news items on information technology,
     and is provided three times each week as a service by Educom --
     a consortium of leading colleges and universities seeking to
     transform education through the use of information technology."

     EDUPAGE does not talk about education, but it does give one
     paragraph summaries of technology stories printed in leading
     newspapers and magazines. (EDUPAGE is a *distribution* list,
     much like the Roadmap list. You can't *send* letters to the
     EDUPAGE list, you can only *receive* letters from the EDUPAGE
     list).

     HOW TO GET IT:

          Through e-mail:     send an e-mail letter to LISTPROC@EDUCOM.EDU
                              which says SUB EDUPAGE <YOUR NAME> in the body
                              of your e-mail letter.


NEW-LIST

     This LISTSERV list is the place where new LISTSERV lists are
     announced. (NEW-LIST is a distribution list, not a discussion
     list). If you want to keep up to date on new LISTSERV lists,
     NEW-LIST is for you!

     HOW TO GET IT:

          Through e-mail:     send an e-mail letter to LISTSERV@NDSUVM1.BITNET
                              which says SUBSCRIBE NEW-LIST <YOUR NAME> in
                              the body of your letter.


SPECIAL INTERNET CONNECTIONS

     Also known as "Yanoff's List," this is a list of hundreds of
     Internet resources that are available through e-mail, telnet,
     FTP, Gopher, Finger, and the Web.  This list is ESSENTIAL for
     anyone who wants to be a serious net traveller.

     HOW TO GET IT:

          Through FTP:        address: csd4.csd.uwm.edu

                              items on the list!)

          Through LISTSERV:   Subscribe to INETLIST@CSD.UWM.EDU
                              (remember to send your subscribe command to
                              the LISTSERV address!!)


DR. BOB'S "ACCESSING THE INTERNET BY E-MAIL"

     For those of you with Level One access to the Internet, you should
     certainly check out this free file. It talks about how to access
     FTP, Archie, Gopher, Veronica, and several other Internet tools
     using nothing but e-mail (btw, this is from Dr. Bob Rankin and *not*
     from my dad -- the Rev. Bob "Bob" Crispen)

     HOW TO GET IT:

          Through e-mail:     Send an e-mail letter to
                              LISTSERV@UBVM.CC.BUFFALO.EDU which says
                              GET INTERNET BY-EMAIL NETTRAIN F=MAIL
                              in the body of your letter.

COMPUTER MEDIATED COMMUNICATION (CMC) SOURCES ON THE INTERNET

     Also known as December's List, this list is FOUR TIMES as long
     as Yanoff's list, and lists pointers to information describing
     the Internet, computer networks, and issues related to computer-
     mediated communication.

     HOW TO GET IT:

          Through Usenet:     alt.internet.services
                              alt.answers
                              news.answers

          Through FTP:        address: ftp.rpi.edu
                              path: /pub/communications/internet-cmc.txt


NETTRAIN REVIEWS

     James Milles, the author of the "Discussion Lists: Mail Server Commands"
     file that I used in MAP06, is also the listowner of the NETTRAIN
     LISTSERV list. NETTRAIN is a discussion list for Internet trainers,
     and these trainers are often asked by James to review some of the
     Internet training books that are available at your local bookstore.

     Before you head off to the bookstore and pay upwards of $25.00 for
     an Internet book, you might want check the NETTRAIN reviews to see
     if the book is REALLY worth the money!

     HOW TO GET IT:

          Through e-mail:     send an e-mail letter to LISTSERV@UBVM.BITNET
                              which says GET NETTRAIN REVIEWS F=MAIL in the
                              body of your letter. This will send you an
                              index of the reviews, and you can then use
                              the GET command to get the review that you
                              want (reviews are stored in 4 different files,
                              so you will need the index to figure out which
                              file you should get).
