I'm here, listening, and yes, we have have a Charter that discribes what
bionet.agroforestry is supposed to be about.  And I try to post my stuff
to all the other news groups, and have not posted to GAOF.  Brain fart,
I guess, its there with an international audiance that I missed.  Some
of my stuff is local, less national, and even less international in
scope. Yet in the long run, the  local events effect international
events in the same way a single drop of rain effects the next flood.

Nick, dont know the answer, as individuals we spend way to much time at
the computer for what we get out of it, personally.  Yet it benefits the
world of foresstry, the enviroment, and in the end, human kind.

Scary, isn't it?
