the newswire on the global indymedia newswire has been gone for a few months now, replaced by a "features" newswire that's always filled with news from west coast IMCs. it;s alomst impossible to find the old open wire there. you have to look for this tiny little text link that says "open". like what does "open" even mean? if you'd never been there before you wouldn't know.
does anyone know how and why this decision was made? it sucks.
go there and tell me how easy/hard you think it is to find it: http://www.indymedia.org
