Technology Change

The Florida DDC has ceased regular updates through the Yahoo!Group and gmail account. The color PDF newsletters were well received, but many people did not receive them because either their email service deleted the attachments, or they were unable to view the attachment. At the same time, Yahoo! started requiring a Yahoo!ID to join YahooGroups, forcing people to use the Yahoo! mail service to use the Yahoo!Group service. Because of this we fell back on the gmail mass mailings-- but in that case, people could not respond to the entire community. Because of this we have started using GoogleGroups.
To join the Florida DDC GoogleGroup go to and join. This is an environment much like Yahoo!Groups, and includes space to host small webpages which will be useful as we start developing our web presence over the next year.
