if mentioned earlier... (english)
24 Mar 2003

Yes, I recall basically the same message being mentioned earlier, the last day or so. Why not just follow-on the last note with a comment or is Newswire strictly a serial resource having much useful information that maybe someone will hopefully follow through with and organize further or connect with current organized efforts? I never veiwed IMC's older archived Newswire postings and center articles that I consider having much that is still relevant in terms like reading old newspapers, though could be interesting in itself, but in some cases related to virtual and connected to action type organizing.

Lastly I would surely find it interesting if www.anti-dmca.org was hosted or connected in any way with RIAA, or 'whowho (www.broad'carp.com, CARP, M. Cuban, etc, but I won't run on again about all that but I think anyone interested in institutional type concerns would be.


(http://www.boston.indymedia.org/front.php3article_id=12279) "MIT Still Doing War Research For Pentagon" -I was surprised to hear ( yea there were some non-students there) during the (http://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/nr/2003/protest.html) gathering and during speakers talking at Kresge Oval last Thursday that MIT was (I was straining even from up close at times due to the helicopters) not even in the "top" ten in terms of research related to Pentagon and Air Force and Draper Labs and whatever involement that I do not have details about. I thought MIT was higher on the list?
Are other universities involved like BU is with sweatshops last I heard - so few people respond to mail - to continue focus while addressing many other university related issues. (on a minor note I'll mention again that Tufts is limiting printing to those who pay tuition, have a sofwtare ID, etc. (as one would expect they would eventualy - I for one was printing maybe 5 pages every 6 months!)

Also I meant to follow-up on the (can't quickly find pointer)...sorry to repeat (another feature of VMS Notes was dir/auth="" but antoher time another software likewise keywords were handy to attach to particular posting for group searching and stuff but...

I can understand an organization being loosely organized but not why a URL that once appeared to have referred to Boston Campus Anti-War Coalition change without redirection and now points to a domain agent.

Nor did I see a mention (only looked quickly) in The imc-boston 2003-March Archive by Thread
(http://lists.indymedia.org/mailman/public/imc-boston/2003-March/thread.h)

I won't bother asking why www.nomarnoway.org and others with similar and various efforts would use name@'whowho.com (http://lynx.dac.neu.edu/j/jzappia/webcastingmatters.html, or why say someone such as Citizen Works appears to send information via email lists without complementing as far as I know with existing independent.

I'll end with one more rant about the refernce to search engine and "top ten" search data - I for one dont' need a search engine or idex / directory (it's not a search engine..)to tell me what book to purchase, or what to direct my attention on...) I may have misread or forgot details of the posting...I wouldn't want to confuse something (or have someone misread what I write) and then call me a "moron".

"Moron with a non-corproate view" -Not my chosen use of words generally. --> http://www.boston.indymedia.org/front.php3?article_id=9835&group=webcast

A "thought" from Bush regarding length of invastion of Indochina wrong two, I mean Iraq: 'it may seem like a long time because of all the action on the TV"
