is overloaded and slow, other IMCs involved include Biotech (possibly), Euskal Herria and Poland. This has been discussed on lists for several months, with acceleration of the energies put into this since the Ahimsa Seizure in October 2004.

"The creative person should have no other biography than his works."
B Traven was the pseudonym of a truly international author: he wrote in German, lived in Mexico, had spent time in an English prison and travelled extensively in Europe. But most of all, he delighted in his anonymity - the quest for who
he was has fascinated some people as much as his actual writings. His notions of anonymity and freedom of speech seem to fit well with the ideals of indymedia - and particularly of the open-publishing to be hosted on the new server.
- The purpose of this server is
- To host MiR publishing sites for collectives that have gone through the NewImc process
To ask for a site to be hosted please email traven-process
In addition to the primary function of hosting Mir publishing sites the plan is to also host some mirrors of Mir sites, see TravenMirrors
for more info.
