Abstract : The Clipping Service is a program that will send selected stories from the New York Times and other information sources to you via electronic mail. In order to use the Clipping Service, you first describe your interests to the Clipping Service in a full-text query language, and then mail this interest profile to the DARPA Internet mail address clip db.lcs.mit.edu. Whenever a story is published that matches your interest profile the Clipping Service sends it to you via electronic mail. The Clipping Service was built as an experimental test of a new way to use electronic mail as an infrastructure for computer based applications.
