I wonder... in the age of RSS, IMs, Twitter streams, etc., is a "newsletter" that simply collects and distributes "news" items after the fact all that useful?
Both Corrigo (http://stc-techedit.org/Newsletter) and Carolina Communique (http://newsletter.stc-carolina.org), the two community newsletters I'm involved with, publish "feature stories" (similar to Intercom) rather than a compilation of what happened in the past month.
The Carolina Chapter and Technical Editing SIG use their website (as well as FB, Twitter, RSS, email lists, forums, and more) to distribute "news" in an "as-it-happens" timeframe.
Just a thought....
Hmmm... That is a good thought. I appreciate the feed back from both of you. : )
I've been thinking about that too Rick- right now SuperScript is sort of a combination of both, we often focus on feature articles specifically written for the issue, as we assume most of our readers are up to date on news items probably from other channels.
