Thanks and Introductions
A few people have been absolutely vital to getting the tech side here up and running, and deserve many, many thanks. The Indymedia tech folks, especially Kellan and Evan, have been volunteering their advice and expertise since I started this gig. Voxel dot net is the best webhost in the free world, and their support team has been amazing. More recently, the developers community (especially Janra) behind Scoop, the software on which were running The Narcosphere, have been heroic in their willingness to help when Ive been stumped.
This site, like most dangerous and exciting ideas, is a work in progress, and will be for some time. For instance, the biggest challenge publisher Al Giordano and I are working on right now is breaking the language barrier here. Readers have probably noticed that while classic Narco News is a fully bi- (and often tri-) lingual site, were still just talking to each other in English here in the Narcosphere. Rest assured that were working hard on this and that the coming days will find many more voices able to join this space from all across América.
I want to encourage everyone, readers and copublishers alike, to voice their questions or suggestions. Already, many of you have, and the site is already getting better every day. Our copublishers can comment freely in this sites comment forums, and all readers are invited to write me at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions and comments about the site.
