Technology & telecommunications access.

Twin Cities Free-Net (TCFN)
Volunteers needed and donations accepted.

Description: Information access increases daily, yet we experience increasing isolation from our neighbors and alienation from our communities. TCFN's online 'bulletin-board' discussion forums allow you to collaborate on community projects and discuss local issues.

Program goals: To overcome barriers to participation, TCFN provides training and dial-up lines and works with public libraries and neighborhood groups to provide terminals. Help rewriting training materials in both English and Spanish is requested. They expect that the need to focus on access issues will diminish as costs of all kinds continue to drop.

Comments: Member organizations receive internet site space and an e-mail address, and some run non-live discussion forums. More information is available at their Community Networking & Electronic Information Access page.
