          The Internet Anti-Fascist: Wednesday, 25 February 98
                     Vol. 2, Number 9 (#71)

                        BREAKING NEWS: WE WON!

The three anti-fascist news groups won the vote by a 7-1 margin. More
details on Sunday.



TINAF has evolved over the past several months. Its basic focus has
become presenting pointers to information rather than the information
itself. This lets us "distribute" far more material without
overwhelming readers.

The ftp supplements seem a particularly useful way of getting linked
stories and analyses out over the net.

It also makes it easier for others to edit special supplements on
topics in which they specialize. We think we've done a fairly good job
thusfar at creating the "good mix" of articles from different areas.
The "good" is also described as the enemy of the best. Others who
specialize in particular areas can do a far better job and we are in
the process of communicating with these people to get their services
and make TINAF even better.

                               - - - - -


There are several journals and regular news releases on the net that
should be of interest to anti-fascists. Some, like the Antifa Info-
Bulletin and Holocaust Newsletter are explicitly anti-fascist. Others,
like RightWing Watch Online, published by People For the American Way,
have a broader orientation. For readers who don't regularly read them,
TINAF will start keeping the latest copy of these journals on our ftp
site so you can take a look at them when you have the time. They're all
available at:


A number of readers have questions about how the Old Boys Network
developed and where its power comes from. I am writing an extensive
article on this topic. The three anti-fascist news groups are generic;
readers pointed out that there is no reason why other groups can't be
created to focus on topics like Christian Fundamentalism or abortion
rights. They're quite correct. But to create these groups people need
to learn more about how the whole new group creation process works and
develop a better understanding of cyberspace.

Both Computer underground Digest and CyberWire Dispatch have useful and
generally well-written material about sundry net topics. So they'll be
up at the ftp site as well.

Abbreviations for the latest issues of the journals are:

afib.txt = Antifa Info-Bulletin
cud.txt  = Computer underground Digest
cwd.txt  = CyberWire Dispatch
hn.txt   = Holocaust Newsleter
rww.txt  = RightWing Watch Online

Finally, several of us have been gathering various documents related to
UseNet and creating news groups. We tried to be as thorough as
possible, even if some of the documents could be added to plant life
and increase food yield enough to end global hunger. But even bad data
is useful for critical analysis; knowledge is power, but only if it is
a broad knowledge including material that might be threatening
psychologically or politically. Only the organizationally inept want to
limit their input to things comforting or that confirm pre-existing
