This site started life in 2003 although its actual birth is sometime earlier, around 1984 in fact, when I launched New York Online (NYOL), on a dial-up Bulletin Board System, or BBS. NYOL did pretty much what InI does and it ran until 1992 when I left New York for Africa. NYOL broke new ground in networking out independent news to the planet (in 1984 only the big corporates had access to leased lines).
At first, I used InI to publish my own essays but as with NYOL it grew into what is now an archive of getting on for four-plus gigabytes of articles and links to articles, tens of thousands of them in fact.
Here’s a link to an archive by month of almost every article on the site from September 2004 to February 2010. There has to be something like 25,000 pages in total plus thousands of links by subject including extensive archives of Information Clearing House (almost from Day 1), VTJP Palestine Newslinks, Military Resistance, URUK Net, CounterCurrents, IPS and so forth. In addition there are currently over 15,000 articles on the WordPress site).
You can also find my work published on a number of sites including Global Research, Dandelion Salad, Strategic Culture Foundation, ColdType, Black Agenda Report, Dissident Voice, 4th Media and a bunch of other sites across the world as well as being translated into an unknown number of languages which include Portugese, Spanish, Arabic, Serbian, German…
