Excellent pre-emptive thoughts. Is the open public list thing a Noisebridge
cultural norm? If not then we could just keep it a closed list, I guess, but
that does feel odd.

I hope to send out the first issue some time today, so let's go with a
noiserat alias first (to danny at spesh.com ) and then talk about a mailing
list later.

We used to have a disclaimer on NTK occasionally about a similar issue
(saying that if you wrote to us, we'd assume it would be for publication).
Maybe that would work.
