It was agreed by many that the existence of a (moderated) quantum foundations mailing list, with a wide scope and involving the broad international community, was long overdue. Now it exists, with currently about 500 subscribers. To subscribe, send a blank email to quantum-foundations-subscribe@maillist.ox.ac.uk To make a post, send an email to quantum-foundations@maillist.ox.ac.uk

Quantum entanglement which is the key ingredient for the storage and distribution of quantum information among the fundamental physical constituents, was first noticed as a key feature of the quantum world seventy-five years ago by Schrodinger. Since then, the long road of development of the theory and applications of entanglement has led to remarkable concepts and technological prospects. Along this long road have also spruced up many surprises, paradoxes and fascinating puzzles.
