The Internet has conceptually made the globe smaller by making it convenient and inexpensive to interact with people regardless of distance or location. The dysphagia listserv was conceived in October 1995 in an attempt to connect professionals who share a common interest: swallowing and its disorders. It was my hope that the dysphagia listserv would provide me with an opportunity to create a circle of colleagues. Though I started the project while participating in a PhD program at the University of Iowa, now that I live in a rural area, this type of professional interaction is even more important. My primary goal was to attract a multidisciplinary group of professionals interested in dialoging about case studies and other issues related to swallowing disorders. Once the dysphagia mail-list was conceived, there were several decisions to make. The first issue was how to fund the project with regard to hardware, software, and Internet access. Without an obvious funding source, I had to fund the early stages of the project myself.
