Subject: 2 pieces of good News

1. Thanks to David's reminder, I contacted Larry Erlbaum about
subscription rates in developing countries. While he does not know
a blanket solution, he has authorized me to submit a list of
people/institutions in such countries and they will receive a 50%
in the cost of Mind, Culture, and Activity for current and future
subscriptions. Using the subscriber lise for XMCA, Peggy and I have
identified all of the people we believe qualify for this discount and
will notify them directly. This is not a transparently easy task
because not everyone uses an email address with a country code
extension. So we used a combination of email addresses and institutional
identifications (which are also not consistently given). If you are not
contacted by Peggy but believe you qualify, please contact peggy
directly at her well known pbengel address here at ucsd (see me trying
to dodge spammers). Also note that this will apply for institutional
subscriptions as well. I do not know how to contact people not on xmca
who are subscribers and cannot imagine where the time would come from to
track them down.
Thanks for your persistence, David.

2. Thanks to collegial discussions with, we have reached
an agreement whereby the Luria volume and Mind in Society will be
removed from that web site. For my part, I will have scanned and make
available to many relevant articles from edited volumes now
out of print and agree that when either of the books in questions goes
out of print that I will seek permisstion for them to be
placed on

Open communication is this complex and hostile world is not easy to
obtain. Collectively, we are doing the best we can.
