Groups sharing models and data on the Internet, not paper – the case of “neutrino” OR “neutrinos”

Please post your Long Baseline Neutrino Newsletters on the Internet, and only send links and short announcements by email.  Make a member site and let people control their email notices.

I think I wrote about this before, but is this newsletter available online somewhere.  My email only has a fixed part of the screen assigned to reading, so your long text only gets rendered poorly when I try to increase the text size.

Also, if you are emailing to larger and larger groups, the cost of sending duplicate text grow.

Can you put it online, and just send a link?  I have been saying this to many list serve based groups on the Internet.  It was one thing when groups were a few dozen or a few hundred. But group size on the Internet ranges from 2 individuals to billions.
femto to milli electron Volt data
Do you happen to know if anyone has measured the spectrum and location of neutrinos in the femto to milli electron volt range for solar system sources? That should be possible with time of flight correlation methods.
I am trying to fill in some gaps in my picture of the uses of “neutrino” in the Internet.
I am trying to organize all the neutrino and related materials on the Internet.
“neutrino” OR “neutrinos” has 17.8 Million entry points.
There is massive duplication, most materials are not sourced well or linked properly. And all the PDF and HTML forces human readers into the sharing processes. The equations, models, data, data streams, assumptions, results all are being flattened to text, rather than shared in forms that can be immediately used for comparison, calculations, simulations, calibrations, visualizations.  Think if you worked out some beautiful models and could only share them on paper in black and white.  Compare that to anyone being able to use your computer, models, and data directly — AND where all such collections were in a form that it appeared as a whole. Right now, all the groups working on neutrinos (and hundreds of thousands of specialized topics on the Internet) have humans in every diffusion and communication path.  Rather, the materials should form a single gameboard where everyone can see (and use) everything.  I helped the Joint Chiefs one time and appreciate the concept of having a war game where everything that is known is visible.  The only difference, for neutrinos, is that everyone would have access.  And a large part of that is the automatic linking of everything to its associated topics.  And “new” term for a user can be traced, simply by hovering and tracing.  Experienced users just read.  And everyone can grab and use collections of equations, models, data for their own views and visualizations.  All of which they can share with everyone.

That is my dream and view of the Internet.  It has everything, is for everyone, and universally accessible.  It is possible.

I did write to you before, and looking closer I found the link to the Newsletter. But it had no identification or contact information, and poorly laid out, I was tired and could not recognize it as a serious effort.
Add up the global expenditures on neutrino research and technology, and there ought to be a web site that covers the topic completely in real time.  So everyone can see all of what is happening. If you let it default to commercial sites or random postings, they are going to fill the Internet with misleading and incomplete “information”, and the global effort will devolve into the common confusion and random stuff put on the Internet that all groups are falling into.
I am too old to want to build a site for the neutrino community by myself.  Though it pains me to try to work with such a chaotic mess that is out there now.  I am trying to organize for myself, but it needs young people paid to track and organize and make useful all that on “neutrino” OR “neutrinos”.  I could help advise and guide.
