I applaud this idea for two reasons:

1) This would enable people to choose only those topics for which they
want information.

2) Perhaps more importantly, having the list separated into specific
interest areas might stop people from posting messages that are silly and
irrelevant to tech writing in general. For instance, whoever was posting
all those messages a while back about whether or not to have a guest
chair in one's cubicle would realize that the topic applies to *none* of
the interest groups. (Except maybe then we'd all just be quarelling about
setting up TECHWR-officefurniture...)
