     Here's an idea. BURST YOUR PARADIGM!!! Maybe women will access E-mail 
in a different manner than the established E-mail community. In that case 
we may begin with conversations on emotions, fears, insecurities, 
situations etc.... that are not in the other networks. Maybe women need to 
personalize the system before we can use it to it's fullest extent. And 
that may be a very good thing. Has anyone thought of the negative 
consequences of communicating through computers and not face to face with 
our collegues? This is a revolutionary technology- but all 
revolutions have some consequences- maybe they won't be seen for years to 
come. So maybe we are claiming this network- let us!!!!! Have an open mind 
about the use of this technology- maybe it can be more that you envision.
