**Welcome! Say hello and introduce yourself on this thread**

Welcome!

This is a thread for new users to say hi, say how they found the site and ask any questions which they may not want to post a new thread about.

Coming into a community where everybody is throwing their Kropotkins and Bakunins about like tennis balls can often be daunting. In-jokes and people's cliques can seem off-putting, but every community has them - you will find that most people are pretty friendly once you start posting.

Don't forget to fill out your profile information by click on 'my account' at the top of the page.

Try and keep complex crap, in-jokes, flames and arguments off this thread and lets let newcomers feel at home smile A good way to get a basic introduction is to check out our posting guidelines.

Cheers, and welcome to our new users from the libcom.org crew cool

Hi there.

I would like a nice quiet life with a wife and kids and a boring job. Thanks in roughly equal measures to capitalism's ongoing destruction of the earth and the human mind, as well as this poxy revolution everyone keeps talking about, this easy life of mine will never come. This makes me angry and mad all at once. So i decided it's best to be inside the tent pissing out than outside pissing in, so here i am trying to learn and develop with only the pretentious swine on this forum for help.

Yay.

Well, being a fan of luke-warm pizza and also being new here I'll say Hi.

I'm currently a student studying software engineering. I have a big interest in Free (libre) software and from that have developed an interest in anarchy (My first real introduction to anarchism was finding an anarchist FAQ in the Debian GNU/Linux package repositories).

Hey - me too! When I came across that I think it was the first time I actually realised that anarchism was a serious philosophy and movement, rather than just masked-up rioters who just want chaos for its own sake as news coverage of May Days implied!

Shameless self promotion: my follow-up to that article on free software as anarchism in action is called The Limits of Free Software. Worth a read if I do say so myself.

Updates needed to that link page: add:

AktiviX: free email and mailing lists for activists. Maybe webhosting soon. A riseup.net style collective here in the UK. - www.aktivix.org

Bittorrent, the most efficient and most decentralised P2P system currently in existance - http://bittorrent.com

Wikipedia: a great project with some problems (e.g. the Zionists tend to rule the Israel/Palestine stuff) - www.wikipedia.org

Nice article. Shows quite well how Free software is only one small part of the neccessary social/economic changes and how Free software itself is constrained in the freedom it can offer by external factors.

Thanks. Yea I thought that was somthing important to talk about after writing the first article singing the praises of FLOSS. Freedom published that first article in two parts, interested in the second John?

Hello there,

I would be happy with a nine-to-five, a plasma telly, and twenty pints of Stella at Yates Wine Lodge of a saturday night, but I am a sad loser with no job, no money and no friends, so I decided to be a trouble-maker instead. Here is some trivia that you may not find interesting:

I am a bit older than my teeth.

I collect stones and spanners when I am not busy thinking, eating or sleeping.

I can't play the cazoo.

As I've had cause to point out elsewhere on these boards, caramelised onion & poppy-seed bagels are the weekend breakfast of choice for all class-conscious workers.

Damn.... exposed. And I would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn't for those pesky U-75 exiles. grin
