I am a member but I haven´t logged on since a long time. I think that site is having very few traffic. It was another trial to interchange ideas about Polywell. Nothing strange is with it. The intention of that group was including just technical info about Polywell , and therefore the administrator established that only people with a technical degree may get a membership. It is not an open-site as this one where everyone can post and make comments about any subject.

Keegan,

I think I am a member there. I have also given permission to the owner to repost any of my bits from IEC Fusion Technology blog.

There was a point during the great inflation where all kinds of private, public, semi-public and semi-private private channels were being set up. Most of those efforts (I have a couple extra blogs to show for it) didn't work out.

So far as I can see it has come down to these:

Announcements:

NASA Space Flight
IEC Fusion Yahoo Group

Discussion:

NASA Space Flight
Talk.Polywell

Reference:

IEC Fusion Tech blog - esp. the sidebar

With some overlap between the functions.

I think what all that proved is that the open model is best for advancing the science and technology.

For private messages - e-mail communications seems to work out well.

BTW if degrees were the qualification I was not qualified to be a member. Which shows on the face of it the narrowness of the qualification criteria.

It may be that a plumber with field experience has available an idea that will serve us well. The more minds applied in the early stages the better the final results.
