Email: Electronic mail is messages transmitted over the Internet. These may be simply text, or acompanied by attachments like documents, images or other content.
Email lists, or groups, are important networking tools offering the facility to â€œstarburstâ€ a message from a central postbox to any number of subscribers, and for them to respond. Lists usually offer a facility for reading and replying through a web page – so they can also operate like forums. This web page may offer an RSS feed – so joining up old and new tools. However, there is something of a divide between blog-based conversations and those on lists and forums because the former are dispersed across a network, and the latter don’t uually allow tagging or such easy linking.
