I'm no techie, but I've always been up for contributing to indymedia
cymru. Given our limits on mumbers and tech capabilities, I'd go along
with the idea of a page on the UK site as being the most realistic option
for grtting something going :-) Kelvin
p.s. talking of not being a techie, anyone know how I can change my email
address on this list to my cat address - above

> The network of local indymedia collectives (that is the collectives that
> share the uk site, plus Bristol/South West, Scotland, Northern England,
> London and maybe Ireland) are well overdue for a network meeting. A good
