During the Gulf War,

| No Comments

During the Gulf War, I was part of an IRC-based news network. Dozens of us each took a radio station, TV station or other source and parroted back what they were reporting. People from all over the world participated, sharing news as it was reported.

I never thought I'd be doing this again but when I learned of the US terrorism just minutes after it happened, I started a new channel on IRC (irc.undernet.net, #moderated_news) and invited people to join me in reporting. There are over 100 people typing and reading news from around the world.
