just a general comment: i'm subscribed to the socnet mailing list and i'm not sure i'd be keen to see all members regularly post messages about their invited lectures here and there, their seminars, their new slides, etc... just imagine the traffic it would generate if only 100 users were doing so, and the loss in relevance the list would suffer.
so as a socnet subscriber, i would rather consider that posting *often* about one's ego-centered research activities is a bit of overload for this communication channel, although admittedly it's good for members to post *sometimes* about their own *questions*.
maybe it'd be relevant to deal with a more local mailing list for this kind of research advertisements?
thanks for your attention,
best

Research and publishing in Europe, Latin America, Africa and Asia have different traditions, different human and financial resources, and face different challenges. Just don't make the mistake of assuming that the situation in mid-west USA is typical of the world as a whole - or that the whole world aspires to be like mid-west USA.

I must agree with the first Anonymous commenter. I subscribe to the AoIR mailing list and it is flooded with these sorts of updates, often from the same person. They generate virtually no feedback and I have to believe much of the list is as tired of seeing these announcements as I am.
