I want to thank all of you for accepting my offer to contribute to the new Electronic Cottage!
Staff members should visit this page on a regular basis, because here I will give you directions, stipulations, requirements for your posts, information on deadlines, and make requests. We can avoid a lot of unnecessary emails if you will take the time to visit this page every day or two. You will be able to directly comment on every post I make here.
In the spirit of openness all discussions about the site will be public at all times. Any visitor to the site will be able to view anything that any of you say anywhere on the site.
If you have something to say that is not suitable for public viewing, please send an email to me.
I want to direct all staff members to a special section of the site called STAFF DISCUSSION. You can reach it by clicking on that tab at the top of any page. It is a blog where you can introduce yourselves, ask questions, and make suggestions. You can freely make comments. As we develop the Electronic Cottage site it will be very important for all of us to share our thoughts and ask each other for help and guidance.
As Editor In Chief of Electronic Cottage I will rely on all of you for your advice, suggestions, critiques, and tips on how to make EC better. We can all make EC the site we want it to be through fair, open and democratic give and take of thoughts and ideas. As Editor in Chief decisions on the course that the site will take will be my responsibility, but I cannot and will not do it without you.
