I don't mean to wax hyperbolic, but I think evolt represents the best of the web.People help each other - for free - with quality information, instruction, and opinion. Thanks to the < tip > practice, thelist signal-to-noise ratio is superb, and flames are practically non-existent. When the etoy/eToys domain name controversy broke last year, evoltians banded together to make some noise and cause some change. Dedicated folks make sure the various lists and servers stay up and running. The new evolt 2.0 exemplifies the commitment, initiative, wisdom, and creative talent of this happy little webdevelopment community.
Sometimes I feel as if I tag along after thelist like akid sister, picking up perl tips or wap basics, asking for an occasional browser check, and in the old net tradition,I try to help those who tag along after me. It's not often I can authoritatively answer a question on thelist; I have not yet gatheredthe courage to write an article, so I am keenly aware of the debt I oweto evolt. I appreciate this community so much and don't say it enough, so my hat's off to you, dear Dan, Martin, Rudy, Scott, Isaac, Jeff,Wolf, aardvark, Adrian, Anthony, Julia, Gina, Marlene, Matthew, and everyone else who ever helped a rookie evolter. After a year of membership, evolt remains the only list I would pay to join. Of course, it's free, and that's the beauty of evolt...the best of the web.
