yes you are right that both imc-uk and imc-london could often do with
more features, although i think that features in imc-uk front page quite
often appear at a good speed. it just depends on how much free time
people has got to spend on this.
as far as for london-imc you are definitelly right, more features are
needed, but imho this hasn't got much to do with the fact that people are
also concerned with parties, bookstalls and film screenings. I think
these are also an integral part of what a local imc project should be.
Anything which is having the project in the real space and not only on
the web, it is a good outreach activity. Film screenings, radio
programs, stalls at events and parties (in this case indymedia 5th
anniversary) are also part of a grass roots, alternative media project.
A good proof of this, is the series of events that under the banner of
the european forum of communication rights, indy-uk co-organised at the
camden centre during the four days of the last esf in london. human
contact, discussions and presence in the real world can only strenghteen
my five cents anyway
