Sadly, ScoutNet2000 will be a private data network to link each of the
Council offices with National, and to provide speedy, real time
coordination on finances, membership database, and the like. It will not
work over the Internet, but instead on private data lines. Thee and me
won't be able to get on.
I asked a couple of weeks ago for ideas that Councils are considering for
this private network and got some good replies. I'm preparing a
presentation for the key Council leadership in our Area III/Western Region
for October 10. When it's ready and I've collected the ideas and reactions
from that section, I'll send a note to Scouts-L, with a URL on where to see
the presentation on the Web.
Bob sentiments are right on of course. Looks like we volunteers will have
to build the public network which will continue to support each other and
