This month we will continue our monthly column exploring internet mailing lists with the Golden State—California. The main list for the state of California is NFBC-Info. You can subscribe to the list by going to http://www.nfbnet.org/mailman/listinfo/nfbc-info_nfbnet.org, or you can also subscribe by sending an email to email@example.com and put the word “subscribe” on the subject line by itself. The list contains both discussion and announcements related to the NFB of California and its chapters and activities.
A number of the chapters in California have their own lists. Below are the list name and a brief description of each. To subscribe substitute the list name in the command above for the nfbc-info phrase.
NFBSF: NFB of California San Francisco Chapter list
NFB-River-City: NFB of California Sacramento Chapter list
NFBC-SFV: NFB of California San Fernando Valley Chapter list
Two divisions in California also have their own lists: students and community service. Their list names are CABS-Talk and CACommunity-Service respectively and can be used in the web or email commands mentioned previously. You can also locate all the California lists just by going to http://www.nfbnet.org/mailman/listinfo/ and searching for the word “California.”Next month we will tell you about guide dog-related lists. As always, you can find all NFBNET.ORG-related lists at http://www.nfbnet.org/mailman/listinfo/.
