E-mail lists are the easiest way to obtain information on running. However,
the mail volume can become increasingly large and your mail-box becomes
clogged when you are subscribed to a number of these toys. The tone is
sometimes informal to more scientifically oriented in other lists.

E-mail lists normally have two addresses, one to subscribe and one to send
contributions to

Part III

Usenet was THE net. You only need a newsreader and server and you can
subscribe to thousands of lists and read a zillion contributions each day.
Most of the discussions are informal, especially the sports oriented ones.
The newsgroups you can access depends also on the Usenet server which
supports your ISP, e.g. not all nl.* groups can be read in Japan (I
doubt if any). The idea is that if you find an interesting newsgroup, via
DejaNews for instance, you ask your ISP to put it on the server.
