Extranet for former staff?, Subjects and digest options

As we move to a new name for this site  (CF-46.net? or CF-more.net?), there is some consideration for how a moderated “list serve” as part of  an “extranet” for former staff  could  be added.

The goals would be to:

  1.  Inform people based on topics: eg,  send information based on registered members subject preference eg..
  • Reunions, arrangements and Personal travel suggestions (and/or)
  • Substantive Policy or Programme discussions  (and/or)
  • Special Emergency or Development focused situations (and /or)
  • Historical research and inquiries  (and/or)
  • All

2.  Have option of how often individual members wish to be alerted

  • All new posts
  • A digest once a week would have posts or just links to the full posts
  • A digest once a  month that have posts or just links to the full posts

3.  Have some topics only available to those members who wish to register e.g for freewheeling or in depth discussion…or possibly staff current or historical news

to be continued……

ps. of course some one will have to continue to do the work of moderating and helping members to register and update their preferences…..teaching how to add posts or suggest new topics etc,


About adhiratha

I joined the UN Secretariat in 1973 and UNICEF in 1974. During 2005-2006 I was on loan from UNICEF to UN Secretariat for special projects and between 2007 to 2010 was a consultant specialist for UNFPA. Have also been consultant or unpaid volunteer for various NGO's . My fathers favorite quote from Sri Chinmoy was : "There is only one perfect road and that road is ahead of you ,, Always Ahead of you...". Association with organizations that seek to implement the UN Charters goal of practical "oneness" feels like an inner connection or reality that is not time or position bound.
