I received notification from Susan Sparks of the National Library of
Medicine that E.T.Net, the conferencing system on interactive technology
for the health sciences, will be retired as of January 1, 1995. According
to Susan,
"As of January 1, 1995, E.T.Net will go offline. It has met its research
and demonstration objectives. Most of its functions will be adopted by
more advanced software applications on the Internet and/or AJN Network."
 
I want to thank all the Health Sciences librarians that contributed to
the E.T.Net conferences, particularly the CAI conference I monitored. The
software bugs and hangups drove us all crazy, but be assured that you
were part of an evolutionary link in computer-conferencing which started
out well ahead of its time but inevitably fell behind.
