I found the CoV website some months ago; I think I discovered it in the
Underground Online magazine, but I'm unsure. Liked it, somewhat. I like
this mailing list, too, though I reply to things others have said more than
I start new threads. Is there anything I dislike about the list? Not
really, though I think memetics are taken a bit too seriously by some. Not
that memetics isn't a good tool, but it is just that (IMHO). Sometimes I
picture a would-be carpenter singing an ode to his hammer, while the other
carpenters are wondering when he's going to build the house. But if it
bugged me that bad, I'm sure I could summon the strength to unsubscribe, so
I guess it's safe to say I like the list.

take care
