Dave: you need to do reply to list, rather than just to me.

Living in Germany, I am a rather long way away from your meetings.

I do like your small pamphlet Tech Tools for Activists and am looking
forward to the next edition.

On Facebook I think you need to be more strident in your criticism and
action. I can think, and can provide the link once I have returned
from holiday, to an article in German about a facebook page that
criticised Daimler. Daimler got it took down and any worker who had
"liked" the page was summoned to HR. Need I say more?

If organising in the workplace, be it self-organisation or evening
unions, I think one has to steer well away from anything that is

I can't think of any reason for recommending facebook to anyone except
to people I would hate or I would like to lose their jobs.

I am currently working on a small document for our network (see
http://www.netzwerkit.de/ueber_uns/leaflet) and I will let you have a
copy as soon as it is finished, asumming you are interested).

Best wishes,


P.S. As I don't know whether these comments belong on your list, I am
sending them just to you. You can circulate them further as you see fit.
