I want to thank John Mark Ockerbloom for starting and administering
Book People. Discussion here has been high quality, and I have learned
a great deal from the many messages posted here.
The BP archive, which I hope will remain open and be indexable by
search engines, contains a wealth of information.
Running a list like BP is under-appreciated by many. Even more in that
John chose to take the difficult road and moderate this group so it is
more like an emcee'd round table discussion. As such, it created a
unique discussion environment we don't see on completely open mailing
Again, my thanks to John for Book People! I am sorry to see it go.
