RE: CBC and Liblicense list

	It might be interesting for those on this listserv interested in
web advertising by journals and journals use of banner ads in particular
to know that there is a listserv that hashes out internet and banner
advertising issues including their effectiveness.  The list is sponsored
by Global Exposure Internet Marketing and is moderated by Adam Boettiger
(email address  I have been subscribed to this list
for a number of months and have learned quite a bit from its discussions.
The listserv, Internet Advertising Discussion List, can be subscribed to
from the Global Exposure web page at URL:
The list is moderated and screened for quality of comment, so that while
contributors may plug their products that are related to the lists
content, it is done in the context of something of value to contribute to
the content of the listserv topic areas.  Advertising strategies adopted
by newsletters is one of the topics that comes up on this listserv.       
I hope this information helps those interested in gaining further 
knowledge of the effectiveness and practices of the advertising industry
on the internet.
