i agree that this list is a good as place for doing something as 
anywhere - as for the 'irish perspective' bit, sure ... but the point as 
to be to internationalise this action rather than confine it to state or 
land boundaries

snap, but i bet like me you're on quite a few lists that have 
overlapping interests to this particular group - i think the task at 
hand is to find a way of working with these groups more closely

the obvious example is [fsfe-uk] - i know ciaran cross fertilises this 
list when ever he gets the chance - it would be good to co-ordinate our 
efforts on one list

also, i've been making people here 
http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/regions/sheffield/  aware of what's been 
happening in the anti-patent debate - they (we) are very interested in 
producing an article in support of this work -  my guess is that the 
such a story would be adopted by the main uk site and perhaps the main 
parent site thereafter - mainstreaming our activity has to be a key 
issue - to me IMC seems the logical place for this given their strong 
links with FLOSS and their organational aims

i agree
