May I correct a point in last week's Astragal (AJ 8.2.01)? My proposal is that the RIBA should provide free e-mail terminals to all registered practices that do not have them. This would help those practices to get useful information from the RIBA, and would also help them to promote themselves via the Internet. About 600 registered practices do not have e-mail, and such a scheme would cost about £15,000 per annum.
Astragal reported that I wished the RIBA to provide free e-mail terminals to every member without e-mail. This would be much more expensive, and is not what I am proposing.
