7. Communications Since the last issue of MTO was published (0.7) a discussion about the possibility of making MTO a multi-media journal, combining text, graphics, and sound, and making it available through the so-called World-Wide Web (WWW) took place on the SMT Email Conference. One smt-list subscriber experimented with the possibility by announcing a WWW multi-media document and inviting smt-list subscribers to access it and report their experiences. A brief exchange of messages regarding the experiment ensued (a few reports of difficulties in accessing and viewing/hearing the file). Additionally, a questionnaire was distributed to MTO subscribers in order to determine how many use WWW and, if they do, the extent to which they use it. To date, ca. 30 questionnaires out of ca. 500 have been returned (6%), and the responses are split (roughly 50/50) between those who have and use WWW on the one hand and, on the other, those who don't have it or have it and currently don't use it. Further, most expressed disinterest in, or at least uneasiness about, learning HTML (Hypertext Mark-Up Language), which is used to create WWW-suitable, multi-media documents.
These current obstacles--no WWW access, infrequent use of it, HTML shyness--will no doubt change over time. MTO and its staff should be ready for WWW technology when the technology is ready for us. Besides wider access and use, there remain some snags to be worked out. Further, since graphics and sound files tend to be quite large, remote storage sites must be secured. Additional editorial and management staff will be required. Convenient HTML authoring tools will be necessary to ease the way into creating WWW documents. These technological and administrative concerns will likely diminish over the next year, during which the MTO co-editorial staff will consider how best to move the journal into the WWW, multi-media arena. When WWW versions of MTO do become a reality, a non-WWW version will continue to be available for those lacking the access or inclination to use WWW.
As mentioned above, only about 6% of MTO subscribers returned the questionnaire. I am including a copy below for those who have not yet sent one in. If you have already submitted one, please do *not* send in another one.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation!

Below is the announced survey regarding MTO subscribers' use of the World-Wide Web (WWW). Your responses are important for planning the development of MTO. Before proceeding with short and long-range plans to create a multi-media version of the journal, integrating text, graphics, and sound, it will be useful to compile some statistics on how widespread the use of WWW is among MTO subscribers. Please fill in the following questionnaire and email it to me personally at one of the given addresses (do not use a 'reply' command to respond!). Please fill in the "Subject:" line with "MTO Survey."

CUT HERE ======================================================
1. Do you currently have access to the WWW?
2. Do you read your email, including MTO, primarily on a machine with WWW access?
3. If you can access WWW, how many times a week do you do so?
Number of times per week: ______
4. If you cannot access WWW, is it because your equipment cannot support the interface which requires such support as high-resolution graphics, audio output, and mouse control? Because it is not available?
Lack of necessary hard/software (explain briefly):
5. If you can access WWW, would you use it to read a multi-media version of MTO?
6. Would you be prepared to contribute to MTO if it required learning how to prepare documents in the HyperText Markup Language (HTML)?
8. Copyright Statement +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ Overview: 1. Retrieving MTO Items (with mto-serv and FTP) 2. Subscribing to MTO 3. Retrieving MTO Documentation 4. Queries and Communications
1. RETRIEVING MTO ITEMS Items are retrieved by sending an email message to the MTO FileServer, mto-serv, or through anonymous FTP (see below). To use the FileServer, send a message to one of the following two addresses:
email@example.com (Internet) firstname.lastname@example.org (Bitnet)
Leave the "Subject:" line blank and as the body of the message include the following lines (no personal letterheads or signatures!):
path YourEmailAddress (Bitnet addresses *must* include .BITNET) send Item (specify item, as listed below) send Item (additional "send" lines, if desired)
After the word "path," enter your full email address (Bitnet users must include .BITNET). Be *sure* to include the word "path" followed by a valid email address. Without the "path" line, mto-serv will not know where to deliver requested items. To retrieve items from the *current* issue of MTO, after the word "send," replace "Item" with the one of the following options:
articles (= main article[s]) gifs (= musical examples) reviews (= review[s]) commentaries (= commentaries on past MTO articles) dissertations (= dissertation listings) announcements (= announcements) jobs (= job listings) package (= all the above items, in a single package) toc (= current table of contents)
path email@example.com send package
********************************************************************** CAUTIONARY NOTE: Subscribers with restricted emailbox space should be careful when using the "package" option. A full issue of MTO, text and musical examples, can be quite large and may "crash" an emailbox of limited size. It may be safer to request a few files at a time, and to remove them from the emailbox before requesting more files. **********************************************************************
For instructions on retrieving items from back issues, or complete back issues of MTO, consult the document "mto-guide.txt" (see below, on retrieving MTO documentation).
MTO items may also be retrieved through anonymous FTP. The site is: husc4.harvard.edu (NB "husc4," not just "husc"). Use "anonymous" as loginID and your email address as password. Change to the directory pub/smt/mto (with the command: cd pub/smt/mto). The file mto.current contains all items constituting the current issue; toc.current is the most recent table of contents. The individual items of the current issue have filenames that begin as follows: mto.yy.v.i, where "yy" is the last two digits of the current year; "v" is the current volume number; and "i" is the current issue number (example: mto.94.0.6). Refer to the MTO Guide for further information.
2. SUBSCRIBING TO MTO To subscribe to MTO, send an email message to one of the following "listserver" addresses:
firstname.lastname@example.org (Internet) email@example.com (Bitnet)
Leave the "Subject:" line blank and as the text of the message include the following single line (no personal letterheads or signatures!):
subscribe mto-list YourFirstName YourLastName
You will receive a message confirming your subscription. Once the subscription is confirmed, to receive the MTO Guide send a message to one of the "listserver" addresses shown above, and as the body of the message include the single line: information mto-list
To cancel a subscription, send the following single line to one of the "listserver" addresses (not to mto-serv!): unsubscribe mto-list
[NOTE: Do not send email to the "listserver" addresses for anything other than initiating and terminating subscriptions to MTO. Further, do not send email to mto-list@husc. mto-list is solely for broadcasting MTO to its subscribers, *not* for communication among subscribers, nor for retrieving MTO items (done with mto-serv), nor for communication with the Editor (address above). Please do not send mail to mto-list@husc, *nor* use a "reply" command on email distributed through mto-list.]
3. RETRIEVING MTO DOCUMENTATION Several MTO explanatory documents are available through mto-serv:
mto-guide.txt (the MTO Guide, also retrievable from "listserver") Instructions for a. subscribing to MTO b. retrieving MTO items (articles, reviews, commentaries, musical examples, and figures) c. posting items in MTO (announcements, jobs, dissertations) d. searching the MTO database authors.txt Guidelines for authors policy.txt MTO editorial policy software.txt List of available software (IBM and Mac) for MTO subscribers, and instructions for retrieving the software mto.index List of all files in the MTO archive (updated regularly)
To retrieve any of these documents, send an email message to one of the "mto-serv" addresses (not to the "listserver" addresses!), and use the format shown above ("path" line with full email address, and one or more "send" lines specifying the desired document[s]). For example, to retrieve the document called "software.txt," address a message to mto-serv and as the body of the message include only the following two lines (no personal letterheads or signatures!):
path firstname.lastname@example.org (Bitnet addresses must include .BITNET) send software.txt send authors.txt (additional "send" lines for more items)
The words "path" (followed by an email address) and "send" (followed by the desired item) *must* appear.
4. QUERIES AND COMMUNICATIONS Send all queries and communications (announcements, letters to the Editor, etc.) to one of the following addresses:
email@example.com (Internet) firstname.lastname@example.org (Bitnet) +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
