Dear members of the mailing list,

the interest in our Forum keeps growing. There are now 198 mailing list's subscriptions, and the media follows the debate as well. Yesterday, for example, La Jornada Semanal in Mexico published an article by Naief Yehya about our forum, which includes some interesting observations and comments (in Spanish):
"Las paradojas del intercambio cultural via Internet" (I)
http://serpiente.dgsca.unam.mx/jornada/1998/nov98/981129/sem-columnas.html

As you all know, this should be the forum's last week. In the next days, though, we will be discussing in detail with the organizator, the House of World Cultures, what possibilities there are for a continuation of this forum itself or for the starting of a new event in the next year.

In any case it will be very interesting to know, from your point of view, which topics should be included in a further discussion. Beside the exchange of opinions and experiences, please use this week to make your suggestions as well.
