Rather than replacing the seminar and tutorial, we found our project complemented them. For lively discussion and immediate feedback on ideas physical meetings are best. For a more developed and structured debateparticularly over submitted pieces of workan email list is ideal. Reference to Web pages can easily be worked into discussion and browsed immediately if readers require clarification or further insight. An advantage of the email discussion is that it provides its own minutes. The record from the archive files can easily be edited so that particularly valuable discussions can be worked into pages for the Web site.
