ABSTRACT: The record is set straight as to who did what in the earlier days of egocentric network analysis - Toronto style.

TO REQUEST A FREE SUBSCRIPTION, CAREFULLY FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW
The HOTT mailing list is automatically maintained by a computer located at the University of California at San Diego. The system automatically responds to the sender's return path. Hence, it is necessary to send subscription requests and cancellations directly to the listserv at UCSD. (I cannot make modifications to the list, nor di I have access to the list.) For your privacy, please note that the list will not be rented. If you have problems and require human intervention, contact: email@example.com.
The next issue of the reinvented HOTT e-magazine is scheduled for transmission in February.
Please forward this announcement to friends and colleagues, and post to your favorite bulletin boards. Our objective is to disseminate the highest quality and largest circulation periodical on the Information Superhighway.
I look forward to serving you as HOTT's new editor. Thank you.
For the protection of your privacy, the HOTT mailing list will NEVER be rented. However, it has become necessary to seek corporate sponsors to help defray costs for subscriptions, reprint permissions, and related expenses (e.g., a new host site - we're pushing UCSD to its limits!). But we can't get sponsors unless we have at least 100,000+ subscribers.
Once we launch a USENET group, we'll be recommending that our Internet subscribers switch to the moderated (and closed) USENET group. Converting most of our Internet subscribers to a USENET will pose much less of a strain on our host system, especially when we exceed 250,000 subscribers. Besides, it's actually easier to read a magazine on a newsreader than it is by e-mail, but it's a lot harder for me to get accurate readership numbers. I'll keep you posted (no pun intended). BTW, we'll continue to offer an e-mail subscription option for those without (or with limited) access to USENET.
There are numerous features that I plan to add over the next year. First, I want to expand trade magazine coverage to over 200 sources, including at least 30 British trade publications. Also, I want to provide summaries of U.S. and U.K. national news programs, i.e., ABC, CBS, NBC, and BBC. I'd like to transmit selected full-text features from The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, the (London) Financial Times, and a Japanese English-language dailies; there are a half-dozen English-language dailies published in Japan). Eventually, I'd like to add The New York Times (if I can negotiate a reasonable rate), The San Jose Mercury News, and The Boston Globe. And maybe even Newsbytes and the Japanese English-language equivalent to Newsbytes. I'm currently negotiating with the Los Angeles Times Syndicate for Michael Schrage's "Innovation" column (Michael is willing to comp HOTT on an experimental basis) and I'd like to add a few other syndicated columns. And I have several other surprises!
Wish us luck!
BTW, information on HOTT archives will be provided in the first issue.
