First: This is not intended to be an advertisement for my new journal. If you feel that this post is inappropriate for this list please let me know and I will refrain from this type of discussion. My apologies if I offend anyone, it is not my intention. I have announced the creation of "Independent A&E" - a quarterly electronic journal intended to be a subscription service and aimed at any small office Architect, Engineer, designer or supporting associate or student to the building industry. I have discussed my proposed content and goals with a few of you in private, but I realized that I was missing the most important comments which is the basis of this new journal. I need to know what each of you would want covered in the content - obviously from an engineering opinion. The following list is what I intend to cover initially, but I want to make sure that the opinions of the each engineer is weighed in my decision as to what is to be published - obviously space is a consideration: 1. Editorials 2. Tutorials 3. Software reviews 4. Summaries of work by professional organizations and links to committees for readers comments. Hopefully to promote unification of professional organizations. 5. Information regarding national committee work that is currently being done by email, fax, phone and other mediums. 6. Internet, Listservice, Newsgroup support and education to help A&E's get online and be heard. 7. Issues related to architects and engineers - a platform for debate 8. Summary and comment on Listservice subjects. So far this is the list of idea's. I feel that it is extremely important to support Listservices, Newsgroups and other methods of communication between engineers. I also feel that it is important to unite the individual A&E so as to remind the national and local professional societies that the work that they do is built upon the strength of the individual (which I am inclined to believe has been forgotten). Finally, inasmuch as there are already organized professional societies working through lobbies to promote change in legislation, I don't want to reprint what is available. However, I would like to create links to this information and update it regularly to that each individual A&E knows where the source can be obtain. AND, I would like to start a lobby of independent A&E's to help convince each professional organization of the importance of making their work available to the international community and creating access by individuals through the Internet. Again, I apologize if you feel that this is not an appropriate subject, however I can think of no better place to consider your opinions. Sincerely, Dennis S. Wish PE Editor & Publisher "Independent A&E"
