Please ignore (unless you feel inclined to respond).

Firstly, I am working on a background task to help interface the Listserv database (2006-2016) into the planned new Metaphorum website. As such, I need a '2017' message to test some inter-system linkages. 

Those who interested in providing feedback/suggestions can view the still-in-development page here:  http://cybersyn.eu/archive-toc   

Secondly, in order to explore a potential linkage between the Listserv and Linkedin (as an example) I will submit another post following this which can also be ignored or responded to here, or in Linkedin. The motivation to activate the otherwise dormant Listserv domain for this experiment is primarily the apparent size limitation within the proprietary Linkedin environment (for me). 

My next Listserv posting (once established) will then be posted on Linkedin by way of my contribution etc --- at least that is the plan. Although selected somewhat at random, the topic is of interest, imo, and so I have compiled 4k words to express my views which appear to exceed the Linkedin short-clippy comment limits (at least as an infrequent user, it seems so to me) -- and probably breaks several implied 'executive' taboos inculturated within that commercial environment. 

Thank you. 
Russell
