IMC - a great resource

IMC is accessible to all, even if they don't have access to a computer. We must be the disseminators.
There is a growing gap between the haves and the have nots, this is widely understood.

It is easy to forget that within the activist community this happens as well. The internet and other technologies are a very important way for us to disseminate information without corporate gates.

Please spread the words of what you read here to those who cannot access a computer (or as often).

Work it into your routine to check at the library or get updates from someone who checks regularly.

There are free internet connections (dial-ups) available through altavista and kgw.com (as well as others) that only require you to ignore an ad that runs on your monitor when you are connected.

You don't need a fancy computer or fancy modem to be able to access the internet for free.

Please spread this message to those who are not as hooked-up.

And always remember, it is important to TALK with our neighbors, co-workers and comrades about the issues we discover in alterative media. This will make IMC an even stronger resource.
