  10. For some time the Math Forum has hosted the mailing list NCTM-L, whose avowed purpose is to discuss the Standards, and which sometimes remains sufficiently focused to have good discussions. One element of improving public forums is to seed them with prepared materials as Ron Ward has done from time-to-time on NCTM-L. We plan to collect these discussions and archive them for easy access on a Standards Discussions page along with other substantive articles and discussions, and to use them to encourage readers to return focused contributions to the mailing list. This will nicely complement the pages we have already constructed on the NCTM Standards.

  13. Web Profits Unlikely Till 2000. Most companies banking on selling their content over the Web won't see a profit until the year 2000, predicts Forrester Research, which says the typical site, such as an electronic newsletter or magazine, will lose $3.9 million beyond the initial investment before they start making money. "Content providers who joined the Web gold rush find themselves tumbling down a long, dark mine shaft. It will be at least four years before they see a return on their investments," says the report's author. (Investor's Business Daily 3 Jul 96 A5).

  15. In the early 1990s a series of papers by Margaret Riel and James Levin identified some conditions that appear to be necessary for the development of sustainable communities (see electronic references, below), but this work pre-dated the World Wide Web and Internet access was a more difficult issue. Levin will be working with us on this project in another capacity, and has offered to counsel us on community building.
