Mailing lists are one of the more popular ways of distributing information on the Internet. They can reach a wider audience than news groups or the world wide web, be more selective in their distribution, and reach their readers in a more timely fashion. The Well Connected Mac has a list of over 150 Macintosh specific mailing lists that cover a large range of topics. You can subscribe to as many as your patience and mailbox will allow.

List of Macintosh Mailing Lists


There are several on-line magazines for the Macintosh community (besides MacTech, of course). You probably already know about MacWeek, but did you know that it is available on-line? In case you don’t know about MacWeek, it is a weekly magazine that was often referred to as the way that one hand at Apple knows what the other hand was doing, and there is some truth to the joke. You can find it at:

Another new on-line publication is MacMagazine. It’s first issue is September (when I’m writing this column), and the first issue has several good articles. I hope that by the time you read this it will have developed and the content will be even better. Check it out for yourself at:

A site that has been around for a while but is a good site to check out, is the ULTIMATE Macintosh. This site has links to tons of stuff. A good place from which to branch out into the Macintosh universe on the Internet. Branch out from:
The Ultimate Mac

Neat Non-Macintosh Sites of the Month

Keeping with the theme of electronic magazines, I would like to draw your attention to The Feed. It is a fully electronic magazine (no print counter-part) and is a view of what interactive publishing could be like in the future. Some very notable people contribute to The Feed and you can interact with them through The Feed. It is a professional magazine, well layed out, and with good content. Highly recommended at:
The Feed

For those of you not in the Silicon Valley, you might want to check out the San Jose Mercury News. This is an on-line version a newspaper that covers the Silicon Valley. These are the same people that bring you Mercury Center on America On-line. The top stories and index are free, but there is a subscription charge to see everything (though it is a lot less than subscribing to the paper itself). They also have a service called NewsHound that can automatically scan the news for key words and send you the articles. A start at agent technology. Read the paper at:
Mercury Center

Well, that’s it for this month. As aways, if you find something interesting, or have updates, send them to

Thanks to, and many others for their contributions for their suggestions and pointers to new and old sites. Apologies to Jon Pugh for misspelling his name in the September issue!
