Wait? What? Now I’m all butt hurt. I never got an invitation. I only heard about this list because someone posted it’s subscription info on the death spirleing BlindTech list.

For the record, I did send out about 370 invitations in total.

179 members in a bit less than a week is not too bad.  At least in my opinion.  If the number of members does not increase significantly over the next 2 or 3 weeks, then some promotion might not be unreasonable, but just keep in mind that some members already seem to be having a problem with the amount of traffic.

Hi,

With all due respect I question the necessity of doing such.  It’s been my experience that lists like other living organisms grow best when tended well and left to their own devices and timing.

It seems to me that through word of mouth people who are meant to find their way here will in due course.

I've been thinking a bit about how to promote the list.  I'm not sure about this, but I think the person who edits Top Tech Tidbits would be willing to run an item about the list.  Perhaps other list members would have other suggestions.  I would say to wait before sending announcements to various places until this is discussed further but a little promotion might bring in many more members.
