Potentially the best/worst listserv ever

Adriene Hill May 16, 2012

Have a lot to say, but not enough ears to say it to?  The Interactive Telecommuications Program at Tisch School of the Arts wants to help out.  They’ve created a project they call The Listserve, allowing you to share whatever you want with everyone else who’s joined.  

From the NYTimes :

Perhaps you would write a lengthy diatribe about politics, a short story about your first job, or a poem about a broken heart. Whatever you come up with, the message is sent to the entire list of people who have signed up for The Listserve, and the recipients can respond to you if they want.

And no, this is not an evil plan to fill your inbox in a single day. Only one user is allowed to send an email each day–picked at random.  

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.

Generous support from listeners and readers is what powers our nonprofit news—and your donation today will help provide this essential service. For just $5/month, you can sustain independent journalism that keeps you and thousands of others informed.
