The SIGCHI mailing and discussion lists are open to all interested people and do not require ACM or SIGCHI membership. Posting to the lists is moderated to avoid spam, irrelevant posts, and subscription queries, but are generally open to to any people, whether subscribers or not. Many lists are archived and searchable on the Web.
The Bakhtin/Vygotsky listserv invites subscribers to post information relevant to Bakhtin/Vygotsky scholarship, including announcements of publications, conferences, seminars, calls for papers, etc.
The chi-web and sig-ia mailing lists are two email based discussion groups on the topics of web usability, design and human computer interaction (the later with a heavier emphasis on information architecture). To subscribe to chi-web, read the info page or to get a better flavor for what happens there, use its full searchable archive. Alternatively, you can join sigia-l from here or view the sigia-l archive . Using the archives for each mailing list, I've compiled a list of the summary postings from useful threads, and a few personally selected favorite postings. Please note: my list below is not an exhaustive list of summary postings. I just picked the ones I found most salient and valuable for reference. Also, these summaries are collections of contributing posts: they are a mixture of opinions and commentary, with some references to reports, usability data, websites or books.

Unsere Besucher sehen davon wenig - die Optik der alten Layouts ist fast ohne Änderung erhalten geblieben, und auch die Texte haben wir nicht umgeschrieben. Umso größer sind die Veränderungen unter der Oberfläche.
