The LA Times reports that

The LA Times reports that “Freenets Getting a New Lease on Life.” It’s good to see that after the bottoming out of the “give it away for free, make money later” concept there are still some freenets around, because it’s clear that the need still exists. My local freenet, Prairienet, has had some hard times, too, but is still around–somewhat stablized by being associated with the University of Illinois School of Library and Information Science. As a side note–it’s due to projects like these and getting to know a lot of LIS students that I’ve come to have a great deal of respect for librarians as promoters of civic life.
