      A - I N F O S  N E W S  S E R V I C E

Inventati.org/Autistici.org is a self-managed international
anti-racist, anti-fascist, anarchist server which has been
operating now for just over a year. The project is handled in an
entirely non-authoritarian manner: they reject the concept of
delegation in the running of relationships and projects,
decision-making is horizontal and political and legal
responsibility is collective. Participation in the project is
also completely open, with about 40 people currently involved
and anyone is welcome to join in. 

They provide a huge range of services, such as: freenet gateway,
web space for self-managed projects, free mailboxes, mirroring,
free DNS, IRC, mailing lists, web anonymizer, and basically
everything which can be useful for information sharing in this
day and age. At the moment, there are about 205 hosted sites,
270 mailing lists and over 2000 mail users.

All this for free. There are no charges involved, and the
project depends entirely on donations from its users. When the
server was started up, it was thought that this method would be
sufficient to keep things going, but unfortunately, users of
their services generally did not make the expected donations,
and things have now got critical for the collective who operate

The success of the project, from the point of view of use, is so
great that they are having to find new housing for the server
and increase the bandwidth, something which is going to cost in
the region of 9-10000 Euro a year! Something which they just
don't have.

In fact, things have got so bad, financially, that the server is
in imminent threat of closure. The collective is making urgent
appeals to all users of its services, and anyone who may be able
to help, to make donations to keep the server going. They
calculate Eur.5 per mail user and Eur.25 per web project, but
clearly not all users will be in a position to make the
necessary donations, so the appeal has been widened.

Contributions can be made through any bank to:

Account No.106697 - Banca Etica, Milan, Italy.
ABI: 05018
CAB: 01600
Reason for payment: "donazione investici"
