Gift-PL Exploits a New Technology: E-mail


Gift-PL In 1993, Craig Wruck started an open email discussion site (list-serve) entitled Gift-PL at the University of Minnesota. Within a few months the number of subscribers grew to 500.

In 1995 Wruck transferred Gift-PL to NCPG. Donald Kent, chair of the NCPG Technology Committee, encouraged Board members to start using the new technology of email so they could participate in the discussions. NCPG restricted participation in Gift- PL to NCPG members in 2001.
