7. Communications
Subscribers will recall that a survey regarding access to
and use of the World-Wide Web (W3) was distributed to
everyone prior to the broadcast of MTO 0.8, and then once
again in the Communications section of 0.8.  Despite two
distributions the number of responses was regrettably low:
out of over 500 subscribers, less than 10% (46) filled in
and returned the questionnaire.  The poor response might
indicate indifference, lack of time, or mailing problems.
In any case, the trend of the responses from the first
survey distribution to the second remained stable:  a
majority of MTO subscribers (74%) are equipped to use
W3, though only a little over half (56%) read their
email (including MTO) on a machine that has access to W3.
The number of times that subscribers use W3 averages out
to between 2-3, though some use W3 as often as 10-15 times
weekly.  Almost 90% said they would read a multi-media
version of MTO if it were available, and roughly 89% would
make the commitment to learn the HyperText Markup Language
(HTML) in order to prepare texts for a multi-media,
hypertextual version of MTO.
If these statistics are any indication of subscribers'
readiness to embrace W3, then MTO will, in time, begin
to offer a multi-media version of the journal.  As
originator and present editor of MTO, I certainly would
like to see it take advantage of the unique opportunities
offered by network technology--the very things that
distinguish the journal.  However, "network technology"
is an evolving, moving target.  Standardization across
so many hardware platforms and operating systems is
fraught with complexities.  Many of these can be hidden
behind user-friendly interfaces, but only at the cost of
escalating demands on users' equipment, as well as on the
network itself.  The staff of MTO could make a full-time
job just out of pursuing the latest advances and adapting
them for our use, and in the process lose sight of the very
purpose of the journal:  disseminating and discussing
ideas, not experimenting with network technology.  MTO
should be a scholarly forum, not a technological
laboratory.  We should explore the technology and adopt
it insofar as it serves the objectives of a scholarly
publication.  However, when technology begins to drive our
efforts, we have missed *our* target.
As the survey showed, just over half of the respondents
read email on machines with W3 access.  Still, that leaves
nearly half who don't, can't, or don't care to use W3.
A multi-media MTO will put Bitnet subscribers out of the
picture altogether.  W3 tools are not yet completely
stabilized.  Demands on the network have increased
markedly, decreasing its speed and taxing the patience of
users who access large files (e.g. graphics and sound).
Although a clear majority of respondents expressed a
willingness, in the abstract, to learn HTML, when reality
hits, how many will actually do it?  Some HTML editors have
become available, but how many authors will set aside their
cherished word-processing programs, mastered with
considerable time investment, in order to learn a new
program whose usefulness may, for the time being, be limited
to MTO?
Moving MTO into the W3 arena means a number of changes for
the editorial and production staff, and for distribution
and archiving procedures.  More staff will be necessary to
check and, if necessary, edit texts.  More storage space
must be secured at various sites in order to archive 
files, particularly large sound files.  Site managers must
be recruited to oversee such storage sites.  Appointing
staff and establishing storage sites will take time.  MTO
cannot enter the W3 arena overnight.  Further, the network
still has some distance to go before W3 is stable, reliable,
efficient, and generally "comfortable."
MTO is an evolving medium in an evolving environment.  The
journal and its subscribers will prepare and be ready for W3
when W3 is ready for them.

   1.  Retrieving MTO Items (with mto-serv and FTP)
   2.  Subscribing to MTO
   3.  Retrieving MTO Documentation
   4.  Queries and Communications
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:
	mto-serv@husc.harvard.edu	(Internet)
	mto-serv@husc.bitnet		(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 john_doe@husc.harvard.edu
send package
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.
To subscribe to MTO, send an email message to one of the following
"listserver" addresses:
	listserver@husc.harvard.edu	(Internet)
	listserver@husc.bitnet		(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 
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
   Guidelines for authors
   MTO editorial policy

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 john_doe@husc.harvard.edu    (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.

the Editor, etc.) to one of the following addresses:
