Hear Eric Thomas, inventor of LISTSERV® software, reflect on 25 years of permission email – the good and the bad – from the golden age to the survival age and the current challenging but rewarding age.

Landover, MD (September 8, 2011) – Eric Thomas, inventor of LISTSERV® software, which launched the email list industry in 1986, will host a live chat and videocast on September 15th.
