Below is a photo of some of the early contributers to rmic. It was taken at the Cleveland Thyagaraja Aradhana Festival in April 1995.

Top row: Ramasubramanian Ramakrishnan aka Subu, Satish Ananthaiyar, Ramesh Vaidhyanathan (all Purdue).
Middle row: Mani Vembar (Cleveland), Mohan Ayyar (Sydney), Usha Rani Pannapalli (Purdue), Praveen Dala (Philladelphia), Aravinda Pillalamarri (Boston). I don't think the little mami to the left of Mani reads rmic!
Bottom row: Balaji (Detroit), Shrivas Sudarshan (Philladelphia), Nandu Gopalakrishnan (Washington D. C).
