Created around 1997 by web design guru David Siegel, Daveworld, or [DW] as members refer to it, is not all about web design but became populated by like-minded followers of Siegel's journal/blog where topics were more varied. [DW] has grown quite large at times with membership peaking at 200 or more, but over the years this has dwindled to a core of 40 or so. We discuss topics of general interest and also share news about our families and friends. Posting volume is quite varied, sometimes going weeks without a post then becoming quite busy for days if an interesting topic is raised. Hosting has been on several free listservs over the years, moving as hosting providers closed; most recently [DW] was a Yahoo Group before moving to freelists.org when closure of Yahoo Groups loomed.
