summary: an explanation about biotechimc.org [en/es]

(please forward also to the oceania-list, i can't find the mail-address)


Dear all,
as you might have seen by now, some volunteers from different IMCs around 
the world are working on an idea for a topic page on biotechnology, and the 
site is currently used to cover the Sacramento WTO meeting.

Of course it would have been better to go through the new-imc procedure 
first, but because of the challenge to get an global group of volunteers 
together, to get the basis of our work outlined and  the need to develop 
some software to show what we want to do in terms of mulitlinguality and 
syndication, it all took longer then expected.

We know that there will be (hopefully constructive) criticism on the 
concept, and therefore we wanted everything as clear as possible before 
announcing it officially. Then however, suddenly there was Sacramento and 
the idea to use this site instead of making a topic page on one or several 
local IMCs like Portland, and here we are....

(Of course, all the rather aggressive communication especially on 
imc-process in the last months also made it more difficult to come with an 
controversial proposal. But hopefully we are past that.)

So please see www.biotechimc.org as the site to cover Sacramento for the 
moment, and we'll be up to the new-imc procedure and discussions with the 
rest of the Indymedia network afterwards.

In solidariy,

PS. We need translators for the articles, but most www-translation lists 
seem not to be active anymore, so it would be great if this could be 
pointed out to local translation lists as well.


Querid*s tod*s:
como ya habr\xE1n visto, algun*s voluntari*s de distintos CMI de todo el mundo
estamos trabajando en una idea para un sitio tem\xE1tico sobre biotecnolog\xEDa, y
el sitio se est\xE1 usando actualmente para cubrir la reuni\xF3n de la OMC en

Por supuesto que hubiera sido mejor pasar por el proceso de  new-imc
primero, pero a causa del desaf\xEDo que implica lograr reunir un grupo global
de voluntari*s, delinear las bases de nuestro trabajo y desarrollar software
para mostrar lo que queremos en cuanto a sindicaci\xF3n y a un sitio
multilingue, nos llev\xF3 m\xE1s tiempo del que esper\xE1bamos.

Sabemos que habr\xE1 cr\xEDticas al concepto (esperamos que constructivas), y por
lo tanto quer\xEDamos que todo estuviera tan claro como  fuera posible antes de
anunciarlo oficialmente. Pero luego apareci\xF3 de pronto lo de Sacramento y la
idea de usar este sitio en lugar de hacer una p\xE1gina tem\xE1tica en uno o
varios CMI como el de Portland, y aqu\xED estamos

(Por supesto que toda la comunicaci\xF3n m\xE1s bien agresiva, especialmente en
imc-process en los \xFAltimos meses tambi\xE9n hizo que fuera m\xE1s dif\xEDcil
presentar una propuesta controvertida. Pero esperamos ya haber superado eso)

Entonces,  por favor consideren www.biotechimc.org como un sitio para cubrir
lo de Sacramento por el momento, y luego empezaremoss con el procedimiento
de  new-imc y las discusiones con el resto de la red de Indymedia.

Un saludo solidario,

  PS. Necesitamos traductor*s para los art\xEDculos, pero parece que la mayor\xEDa
de las listas de traducci\xF3n no est\xE1n funcionando; estar\xEDa muy bueno si se
pasara este mensaje tambi\xE9n a las listas locales de traducci\xF3n.
