Dear Friends,

I continue to research all the angles of this to see if Groups.IO is a better product (it is) and the direction it is going versus Yahoo Groups. The former keeps adding more features and is clearly interested in not merely maintaining but enhancing their service whereas it is clear Yahell doesn't give a crap about Groups anymore and their Groups service is in the twilight of its run in Internet history.

I'm now predisposed to move us to Groups.IO. I'll keep you posted, but is sounds like it is a fairly easy thing to do with minimal disruption to all of you as far as I can see.

I want to share with  you one interesting anecdote which captures the zeitgeist of the online social media situation at present. Over on SoCalScan Yahoo Group there is an ongoing conversation about encryption for OCFA. These people are a week and a half behind what the rest of the Internet already knows about this. I point this out not to insult those people but to point out how out of touch and behind the times Yahoo Groups has become and those who remain mired there get further and further out of the loop.
