What We Talk About
Short answer: perceptual control theory and its research, applications, and how the theory works in "real life".
Much of the discussion on this list reflects the rigorous "engineering science" discipline of PCT. There is also discussion about applying PCT to issues of personal relationships, education, and management.
You might also take a look at our "Best of CSGNet" collection, which is about 100 articles of interest from the early years of our e-mail list.

Who You'll Meet
Our e-mail list draws discussion from people with many interests and backgrounds, including psychology, sociology, linguistics, artificial intelligence, robotics, social work, neurology, modeling and testing.
Many of the people on our Who's Who page read and post to the list regularly, too.
If you're considering subscribing, you may wonder how many additional e-mail messages you'll receive from this list. The traffic on the list varies. Sometimes there will be fewer than 20 messages in a week, sometimes more than 100. Subscribers can choose to receive messages in a digest, which means they'll just get one big combined message periodically instead of many single messages.
