fogo: the Friends of Gerald Oskoboiny mailing list
by Gerald Oskoboiny
What it is
fogo is a
mailing list for my friends to hang out on and
discuss things that interest us. See recent messages
sent to the list for a sample of the traffic.
Everyone I know is welcome to join the list, and
even people I don't
know are welcome if you think we have similar interests.
To join, use the web interface or
send "subscribe" in the subject of a message to email@example.com.
I have a few specific purposes in mind for this list:
- provide an easy way to archive interesting articles
(they'll probably disappear from their original locations on
the Web due to clueless
- share interesting bits/articles with others, on topics including:
- the net
- interesting new business models
- famous hackers
- cool toys
- whatever else we find interesting
- help merge the various communities of friends I have
- everything you post will be archived online and
visible to everyone in the world, forever.
Your children and grandchildren will be able to use advanced
data mining software to find all the messages where grampa used
naughty language or posted offensive jokes, so write accordingly.
- spammers will probably harvest your email address from the
archives. If you have a lame email setup at work, you might
want to arrange for a free email address elsewhere to be used
for this list. (I can give you an alias on impressive.net if you like.)
To post to the list, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is also an IRC
component to fogo, channel #fogo on
irc.impressive.net, with an accompanying weblog.
If you don't have an IRC client handy, you can use a lame CGI interface
that I set up.
"fogo" is a ripoff of FoRK,
Friends of Rohit Khare. FOIB is another
spinoff of FoRK.
