David Tracewell, District Commissioner, Tokay District, Forty-Niner
Council, has started a new Scouting network called ScoutNet, which
operates in 12 countries. He is the North American hub site operating
from Starbase International BBS for Scouting at telephone 209-339-0220.
His new network was featured in the December 1994 edition of Boys Life.
Dave also started the Scouter and Scouting Echoes on FidoNet.
Usenet is a global compendium of discussion forums on several thousand
topics. Many computers that employ the UNIX operating system (as does
CAPACCESS) can provide their users access to the flows of conversations
that include people from all over the globe. The Usenet "news:"
rec.scouting focuses on BSA, GSUSA, WAGGGS, WOSM and other scouting
organizations around the world.
The SCOUTING-EUROPE discussion list targets Scouters in Europe primarily.
