Cocoa Unbound
by Mike Ash  

My recent whining about ridiculous moderation policies on cocoa-dev has borne fruit! Brent Simmons has graciously created cocoa-unbound, a group dedicated to Cocoa discussion but without the foolishness. I've already joined, and I encourage you to do so as well. A well-trafficked mailing list where we can talk about Mac programming without minions of the Mothership getting in our way will be a wonderful resource to have.

Did you enjoy this article? I'm selling a whole book full of them. It's available for iBooks and Kindle, plus a direct download in PDF and ePub format. It's also available in paper for the old-fashioned. Click here for more information.

That bit of moderation was puzzling.

I just use Stack Overflow instead.

Maybe I'm a dolt, but... do you have to have a google account to join? From the page, it seems so...

From what I've been able to dig up, try e-mailing cocoa-unbound-subscribe@googlegroups.com and that may let you join without needing an account.

This is one of the main reasons we created MacTech Conference (http://www.mactech.com/conference): it's important to have a Mac-related conference that isn't run, or censored by Apple, nor have any other attachments.

In any case - just signed up to Cocoa-unbound.

The following message to <cocoa-unbound-subscribe@googlegroups.com> was undeliverable.
The reason for the problem:
