Announcement: http://www.mma-users.org/ We know through Mathgroup that the Mathematica community is very active. I recently opened a web site to complement the tools already available to the community. This web site is exclusively about Mathematica amd It is powered by Wikimedia which enables any user to modify any page on the site, similarly to Wikipedia the encyclopedia, and it has been modified to enable the upload (and download) of Mathematica notebooks. A key goal of this web site is to promote interaction between Mathematica users through sharing content and working together on projects. I also hope to see users add their review of books and/or Mathematica packages I hope you will find the time to continue to contribute to mathgroup but also to interact with the Mathematica users through the web site. I also wonder if users will want to specialize a few pages for non English communities. I would like to thank Remi Barrere and Pierre Albarede who helped me put together the skeleton of a first structure for the site. Obviously that structure will evolve to reflect any new content. Sincerely, Luc Barthelet P.S. Steve, thanks for letting me publish this on the mathgroup dist-list.
