Expert Mailing List Outreach
From Textop Wiki
This page is devoted the project to reach out to expert mailing lists. The goal is to target experts and other smart people and get them to come join us.
Help us build the future Citizendium community! Add to this list of lists!
There are many mailing lists for experts and enthusiasts in all fields, the trick is finding them on the Internet. The website for L-Soft, a mailing list software provider contains a large listing of mailing lists, but it's difficult to determine whether these mailing lists are the largest on their topic. Additionally, Google Groups can be a resource, since it contains lots of mailing lists.
