The MKnet is mknet.org's flagship mailing list. It's really a
"hang-out", think of it as the "home" of some global nomad (if that's
not a contradiction), and you're invited to come chat, have a drink
and a talk. It's a huge room, lots of people, and knowing us MKs,
there's a good chance you'll find someone here you know. Or maybe
you'll make a new friend or two. Whatever the case, if you grew up
not knowing where home was, you've found it now. Come in, make
yourself comfy, and please introduce yourself to us all! Tell us
where (plural) you're from, who (singular) you are, what you're up to.
No subject is off-topic, but for the heck of it, here's a general
THE PURPOSE OF THE MKNET
To provide a forum for discussing issues of concern to MKs;
To encourage contacts between MKs;
To distribute news tidbits about those ""remotest parts of the earth""
that are not covered in any ""respectable"" newspaper; :-)
To discuss whether 'colo(u)r' should be spelled with that darn 'u' or
To announce class reunions of international schools, retreats for
MKs, and any other TCK get-togethers;
To provide a pool (indoor, heated) whereby one MK may be able to
locate "lost" friends or classmates;
etc. (there, that should cover all the bases)
Be careful, the MKnet is a high-volume list! If all the mail this list
generates is too much for you, you have several alternatives:
MKnet-Digest is a digest of the MKnet.
MK-Issues is a similar list but restricted to topics of interest to
MK-Issues-Digest is a digest of MK-Issues.
MK-Issues-Summary is a human-edited summary of MK-Issues topics.
Announce is a very low-volume list for posting announcements of
interest to MKs.
and the MKnet and MK-Issues archives are available on the web at http://archives.mknet.org/.
The MKnet has a FAQ which can be found at http://www.mknet.org/faq.htm.
