This might be of interest to people here who want to diversify a little.
Cross pollination is always a good thing.

I'd second that. Interestingly enough, I've noticed a clear trend inside
of ThoughtWorks where most of the interesting stuff is discussed on our
software dev list; there's very little that people consider so specific
that it can only be posted to, say, the .Net lists or the Concurrency
lists or the functional lists. Conversations tend to not just include
programming, but also philosophy and process as well, which makes for
really interesting conversation.

Does anyone want to experiment and see whether a cross cutting list will
work? If yes, then I've just created
It's an open group so we can try it out and see what happens.
