I'm looking for some direction and hope that someone on this list can help
My employer Texas Instruments is sponsoring discussion lists on Internet
concerning products we provide to students and educators. Many of you are
probably familiar with these products, TI graphing and scientific
calculators. We currently sponsor two lists at a Ohio State University
(Graph-TI & Calc-TI), but would like to establish a business relationship
with a commercial service provider to take over the duties being provided by
OSU. The services were looking for include discussion lists (listserv &
network news) and an archive for source code from users and TI product
information (ftp site). Other services we are interested in obtaining from a
service provider include Gopher, Archie, WAIS, WWW for our information.
Because our customers are students and educators, we feel that Internet
(which is widely available to these groups at no cost to them) is the right
mechanism to provide the forum for people to exchange information about our
products. Commercial services such as Prodigy, CompuServe, America Online and
Delphi could provide these services but most students and educators have told
us that they don't access these commercial services.
TI does have a presence on the Internet, but for security reasons, we can't
host lists and provide anonymous ftp from computing resources on TI's
internal network. Therefore, we'd like to locate a service provider who is
in the business of providing these kinds of services.
Again, any help from list managers would be greatly appreciated.
