Richard Moore

I've posted my original letter to Dugger, along with their intial response, to:

Sent them another follow-up response, appended below.

The existence of the alliance looks like good news.  Wonder what they'll
say next?  Thanks again to Joe for bringing the CALL to our attention.

Dear Mr. Moore:  Mr. Dugger has been unable in recent weeks to access his
e-mail and has asked me to provide interim replies.  He will surely write to
you, however.  Your message is among the most thoughtful received.  Apologies
for any delay.  For your information, the organization that has formed as the
result of the Dugger "Call" is The Alliance, PO Box 1011, North Cambridge, MA
02140, USA; tel. 617-491-4221, e-mail: •••@••.•••.  Best wishes,
Jonathan Fine, Interim Executive Director, The Alliance

Dear Jonathan,

I'm glad to see that "The Alliance" exists.  Who are you folks who are
putting it together?  And which came first, the article or the alliance?
My intuition says you've been working on the alliance and Ronnie's article
was the public launch -- looking forward to hearing the real story.  Do you
have a FAQ or any other materials?

I would of course love to hear from Mr. Dugger, but to be clear, my primary
concern is the organization and follow-through -- so it's really yourself
I'd like to open a dialog with.  I believe I (and various colleagues) could
make a contribution to the manifesto and to the organizing, especially in
the net community.  I've already been forwarding Dugger's article to
various lists, and then following up with my letter to him a day or two
later.  I'll start including an Alliance link.  Any plans for a web page or
