  • Introduction

    15 September 2005

    Welcome to the first release of the Carleton Sentinel! The Carleton Sentinel is the new newsletter describing items of interest to the computer science community at Carleton College.

    We have an email list associated with this newsletter so that we can send out text versions of it on a semi-regular basis. To make this easy to manage, we have created an email list through Carleton’s list server. Computer science majors are automatically added to this list, but anyone else can be added. If you are not currently a computer science major but would like to be on the list, go to https://lists.carleton.edu/info/carleton_sentinel and click “Subscribe” on the left hand side.

    The newsletter is currently being managed by Dave Musicant (dmusican), so contact him if you have any ideas for content or questions about subscribing.
