Jon, I got your notice that you are considering doing a zine and wanted a response.  Are you asking people what they think would make a good zine?  Would be curious to see the responses you have so far.  If it's shooting in the dark you want, I'd say it would make a valuable history to say what Mail practice has accomplished up to now; to list the many tentacles (and testicles and other lobotomized parts) that have been chopped and forgot - there's been many beginning from the early beginnings.  And, of course, for shortages of cash or imagination, the many magnificent things that failed to get done en route, but are still to be done in an undisclosed future.  Ok, that is my contribution - a (sort of) provocation.  Bet you can find some great people to fill in my hungry blanks, say, just for starters, starting with John Held jr (never short on ideas) and Vittore Baroni (who has thought through the history).  Or try Ruggero Maggi on the Tibet Pavillion at the Venice Biennale.
