Misc. Info Services and User Support items
- Date: Tue, 19 Jan 93 13:20:18 GMT
Unfortunately I'm unable to make the RIPE meeting at the end of this
I wish you a fruitful meeting - particularly in the area of networked
information services and user support.
A couple of items you may wish to consider...
The new NSFNET NIC is saying that they may charge for access to their
information by non-US sites. They (amongst others) are tasked with
providing a Directory of information resources. To be of any value -
such a resource would depend on there being a two way flow of
information between US and non-US sites in gathering together this
info. I wouldn't be happy about them charging for information
collected by/from us!!
Several reports are available from the Mailbase Server - either via
email or anonymous ftp - that may be of interest.
In particular - I would like your help in updating the report on
Information Sevices and User Support in Europe. Please contact me if
you wish to contribute an entry for your country.
