Welcome to Brin-L: The David Brin Mailing List

Welcome To The Official Website Of Brin-L: The David Brin Mailing List

Introduction


Brin-L is an e-mail discussion list aimed at discussing the works of award-winning science-fiction author David Brin, with discussions about the works of the other two Killer-B's (Greg Bear and Gregory Benford) coming in as a good second choice. However, discussions of any other topic (be it science-fiction, science, politics, home cooking, or whatever) are also more than welcome.

Administrative FAQ


The Administrative FAQ contains administrative information (well, duh...) about this mailing list. Recommended reading.

Etiquette Guidelines


As will be obvious from the title, the Etiquette Guidelines provide information on how members are expected to behave in this community. Recommended reading. (In fact, all members are expected to be aware of these Guidelines and abide by them.)

Statistics


This section provides you with List Statistics. At the moment it contains the Alpha-Mail Statistics, the Member List and the Monthly Report.

Birthday Calendar


Do I really have to explain this?

Member Profiles


Here you'll find whatever information our members want to share about themselves.

Site History


Okay, I suppose this doesn't require any further explanation... :-)

Mail Archive


An archive of Brin-L's messages is available at Topica.com. Earlier messages, from the time when Brin-L was hosted at Coollist.com, can be found at Mail-Archive.com. However, setting up this archive wasn't the first thing I did after founding Brin-L, so the first thirty or so messages are missing from the archive. As both Topica.com and Mail-archive.com are external websites owned by third parties, I have no control over them, I cannot accept any responsibility for them, and I cannot guarantee either archive will always be available and complete. Ifni willing, a full archive will be available right here later on, but don't hold your breath — it's not exactly top priority.

Words of Gratitude


Several people have contributed to making Brin-L and this website possible. This page offers them some well-deserved words of gratitude.

David Brin


In the David Brin section you'll find a wealth of material about David Brin, including a collection of his essays and articles, about robotics, other live forms and philosophical thoughts about the universe. David belongs to the great sci-fi masters with Robert A. Heinlein and his life and writing are varied and numerous.
