This month we will continue our monthly column exploring Internet Mailing Lists with Ohio-related offerings. The Buckeye State has a good set of lists that offers its members a wide variety of announcements, information, advice, and support.
The main list for Ohioans is the Ohio Talk list. You can subscribe to the list by going to
http://www.nfbnet.org/mailman/listinfo/ohio-talk_nfbnet.org or you can also subscribe by sending an email to [email protected] and put the word “subscribe” on the subject line by itself. The list contains both announcements and discussions of interest to members of the NFB of Ohio and their friends.
A number of local chapters 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 ohio-talk phrase.
