Mexico Resources on the Internet. !

I have compiled a summary of electronic lists regarding Mexico and Mexican 
issues on the Internet.  As can be observed in this list, the number of 
discussion forums about Mexico is rapidly increasing, in some cases with 
some lists duplicating efforts or subjects already covered in other 
forums, which results in an improductive segmentation of audiences.  I am 
sending this summary to the Mexican lists in order to inform members of 
the available discussion forums regarding Mexico on the Internet, and 
hopefully to encourage the merging of lists, sharing of audiences, or 
clarification of lists objectives. Most of the lists shown here are 
bilingual (spanish-english). Note to list-owners:  If you want to add, 
modify or change anything about your list description, please e-mail 
directly to me.
