|Are you on the list?|

For years, the Wisconsin Department of Administration has maintained a statewide e-mail list service called "lio-tech." Aimed at providing a means of communication among participants in the Wisconsin Land Information Program (WLIP), the WLIP "technical assistance" list has morphed into the de facto statewide, general-purpose geospatial mailing list.
As I thought about it, I realized that I couldn't remember how I was added to the list a few years ago, nor could I figure out the proper procedure for a person to subscribe. Thanks to Mike Friis at DOA for pointing me to the subscription page:
Last time I checked, there were about 200 people on the list, from all levels of government and private industry. Topics vary quite a bit, but some recent examples of questions posed to the list: "best" source of acreages for plat books (deeds vs. GIS-computed), titles and wage scales for GIS positions, and orthophoto funding strategies.
Lio-tech is a great way to bounce questions off your colleagues around the state. Are you on the list?
