URLs and web sites are OK....so are FAQs...
some lists periodically post their FAQ for people
who do not have access to web browsers...

Unfortunately, web sites and FAQs are not
"collaborative". In an ideal list, you take a
collection of information and you pass it
around like putty and people add to it and
shape it...the list takes on a life of its own...

This collaborative process works best when
the leaders of a movement sit at the virtual
table where the meeting is being held. In
the case of ARIN, this would be the people
named on the web site as the founders.

Lists seem to have problems when the
people who create them do not show up
for the meetings...
