The neonatology list server NICU-Net was created over a year ago at the University of Washington as an international forum for neonatologists and other neonatal health care providers. The stated purpose was discussion of neonatal issues such as: recently published trials and recommendations, proposed or ongoing multicenter trials, dilemmas in diagnosis, management and ethics, and the effects of health care reform on neonatology. Much like the forums of Rome, NICU-Net was intended to be a "place" of public assembly for discussion and debate. To allow access to the greatest number of potential users, it was set up as a mailing list server that allows anybody with Internet electronic mail (E-mail) access to participate.
