Several EDLIS Agencies have Web pages at Giulio's Bread Crumb Sins.
Sometimes you see old lists of some of the more public EDLIS agents, but they are very unreliable and out of date. It is much safer to use an agent's @edlis.org address. If you don't know the correct address, you do really, just guess. If you want the EDLIS Tapes agent you would e-mail email@example.com This is better than the old system. If an agent changes e-mail addresses edlis.org changes the forwarding e-mail address, and you did not need to do anything. Such addresses are easily remembered should you find yourself away from home on a strange computer with no address book. You know all the agents addresses now! How many do you know individual personal home e-mail addresses for, and how accurately can you remember them? And if the agent changes, or takes on an assistant, you need do nothing, your enquiry goes quickly to someone. If the agent goes on holiday, in retreat, in hospital, or is captured by aliens, you are not inconvenienced, the e-mail gets through to a responsible adult (except for those six agencies run by irresponsible adults). The Bob Dylan Boot Data Base is a case in point. When Joe's new supplier was bankrupted by his volume of use, those using that provider's e-mail address for Joe got bounces for weeks. Those using firstname.lastname@example.org were redirected seamlessly to an old working address when the first bounce was reported. Which agencies are there you might ask? The answer is all. All the topics you can think of that are Bob Dylan related are covered. Just compose the address and use it. And if you detect some aspect of Bob Dylan and his work not covered well, then jump in and help. E-mail email@example.com and set out what needs doing... (Still wonderin' what might work? Want some examples? Topics like firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Names like firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Areas linguistic or geographical like firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Bear in mind that names like firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com may not go directly to the named being, but may instead go to someone who has a pronounced interest in The Band or Elvis Costello. Or not. As the case may be.) firstname.lastname@example.org -- Well, my head's full of questions My temp'rature's a-risin' fast. But, I'm lookin' for some answers But I don't know who to ask???
