(quick and dirty)
The Metab-L mailing list and the Metab-L community started in
August 1995. To me this seems a respectable enough period of
time, giving a pretense to celebrate our common successes
and build this rudimentary page with some links to "how it all
came to happen":
- As for (one of the
now-told versions of) the general story, have a look at the Wikipedia Entry on
have a go at editing, reworking and improving it, if you
- Metab-L's (in)official birthday
is on August 16th, which is the date given on the invitation letter
sent out as a mass mailing to all metabolic specialists whose
postal addresses could be found in our address collections
("wilted and arcane") in summer 1995.
Here is the original
and the "CMC
on previous use of "computer-mediated communication (CMC)"
included in the mailing. Do you remember them?
- And here is a link
to the original
to sci.med.telemedicine a few days later.
ideas and suggestions for improving this page to me
