I definitely think that the posting of papers for conferences wouldbe
a boon to our scholarly studies here on the net.  Saves the 5 dollar
fee otherwise required to get papers, and makes them easily available
if one needs to use text for footnotes.  Saves all that extra writing!
A pool of published papers on the listserver on film would be welcome
too if people were willing to take the time to put them there.  Many
small film journals and magazines with film-related material are
not available here in my part of the world.  I imagine that even
North American colleagues would find this a convenient and quick
way too when looking for research materials.  DO IT!
