James,

I only saw this post of mine because you quoted it (below). I didn't see it
as an independent post on ILDS.

Well, let's see what we can do.  The membership expressed its desire to
renew the online activity during the Business Meeting in Vancouver, and
we'll follow the membership's wishes!

A reality has been that Charles & I have moderated things and prompted a
good deal of discussion, but we're also both in the "age & stage" with
children, the uphill career path, and such...  Charles manages the Twitter
account daily for short materials, and the lengthier (and
fuller) discussions of the listserv seem to have stilled since London --
that is, of course, open to change.

All best,
James
