The newsletter is moving to an online format!

In the next few months, the newsletter will be moving to the web. Stories will appear as they are loaded onto the site, with periodic email updates to members to summarize changes that have been added over the past weeks. In some sense, this will not be much different from the current newsletter except that you will have direct access to individual stories posted.

Members who have been receiving print copies of the newsletter will continue receiving compilations of stories published on the web over the last two months.
