In comment to a recent blog post, Mark asked where to go for more information about Monad, particularly newsgroups. A great question! When Microsoft released Monad Beta 2, they moved the discussions from a private beta newsgroup to the public newsgroups carried on msnews.microsoft.com and elsewhere. Specifically, MS moved all Monad discussion to the microsoft.public.windows.server.scripting newsgroup. You can get this group on either using NNTP from msnews.microsoft.com, or via Google groups.
