right.  email is like someone knocking on your door; the wiki is like the magazine 
delivered to your mailbox.    I wish the wiki could become more the engine that 
powers the tig and I saw it as the future, but also i know the power of email, which
is why the tig always only had (except for tig-announce) the one email interface.  

things really have changed, though subtly yet with great force.   Commercialism of the net 
has been almost the death of it as a medium on the order that it was 20 years ago.  but
one must adapt eh.
