<nettime> New FLOSS tool for online groups - GroupServer


It would be great to see e-lists like these using the new open source
GroupServer tool.  Anyone interested?

It mixes a smart e-mail list with a simple web forum with a dash of
online community features.

Here is a post I am sharing around the Net today ...

I blogged the open source release of GroupServer today:

Those with NGOs and governments interested in promoting additional=20

interest and our shared open source participation.

With the support of the UK government's Local E-democracy National

active citizens ready to make an online difference in their local
communities.  Join us by building an Issues Forum in your community with
