The Jamaica Plain Gazette reports (article not online) that NStar might be creating a listserve to notify residents of power outages, or might not be:
... there appears to be confusion and misunderstanding over some other ideas, including creating an e-mail list to notify residents of power system upgrades, and the reporting of explanations of unplanned outages.It sounds like the people at NStar are confused about what a listserve is. Too bad.
That means we are probably never going to see a blog from them with updates on service outages, that you'd be able to subscribe to via email or RSS 2.0.
I emailed them and explained it all.
