It seems that my server here at the University of Illinois at Urbanan/Champaign
has just added this group to their Usenet hierarchy. Right off the bat, I
have to say that I am jealous, and that I want a group for Speech-Language
Pathology!! The thought has crossed my mind before, and I just never knew
where to ask about starting up a new Usenet group, but then I saw this group.
I also noticed that there were a couple of postings on here that related to
speech-language pathology (ie. stuttering, vocal signal characteristics) and
said to myself "Hey! These would be better addressed to speech pathologists,
not audiologists!" (perhaps audiologists could answer these questions, but
hey, what the heck else are slp's for? =) ). So here's my proposal...
1.) create a newsgroup called bionet.slp (slp for speech-language pathology).
2.) keep it unmoderated so that discussion of field-related topics can occur.
I know that my professor (Dr. Adrienne Perlman) and Department Head (Dr. Peter
Alfonso) monitor email as does the Clinic Director here (Diane Siegle-Ore).
So why not Usenet? I think that creation of such a group would be beneficial
to members of the field, and would aid in education in the community about
speech and language (one of the purposes of a Speech-Language Pathologist!).
How do I start this process, and is there support for this sort of group?
Please spread the word and let me know via email or a posting to this group.
If there already is such a group (possible that our server hasn't picked it
up yet) please let me know the name of the group and I will ask our Usenet
operators to pick it up. Thanks in advance!
