During the last session at Extro-4, Greg Burch showed a graph that displayed a fairly steady rise of extropians list subscribers from ~200 to ~400 over the last couple years. However he didn't take into account the digests and the regional lists.
Here are the current stats:
170 exi-bay 52 exi-can 130 exi-east 94 exi-euro 98 exi-la 29 exi-midwest 15 exi-russia 14 exi-tex 377 extropians 376 extropians-digest 114 extropians-select 41 extropians-select-d 1510 total
Of course some people are subscribed to more than one list. When I remove duplicate addresses from the count I get 1219 unique e-mail addresses. This estimate may be on the high side because some people use more than one address. On the other hand, several of the subscribed addresses appear to be other mailing lists. If this is the case, I would appreciate it if the owners of the secondary lists would send me their respective subscriber counts.
