I haven't posted in forever. This is my newest project. I built the web site. I'm also currently working on a book after spending a full season at Buffalo Field Campaign.

The Northern Rockies Independent Media Network collective is excited to announce the launch of our new website, http://www.RockyMT.org!
Here is our mission statement:
Northern Rockies Independent Media Network is a consensus-based collective located in Bozeman, Montana, supporting non-hierarchical, sustainable community by providing a forum for exchange of media. We dedicate ourselves to featuring voices who might otherwise be silenced by mainstream media on issues that have local significance and/or entail direct action.
That means that right now you can be the media. More specifically, you can publish your written news, your videos, your audio, your events, and your comments while finding out about what's happening in our region. It's easy to do, and you don't need any computer savvy or user account to do so.
We even have a functioning online radio station featuring independent media content from around the country and globe.
Our hope is to provide media resources of multiple types (on the web and in our community) so that your voice can get out there. We serve Gallatin County and immediately surrounding regions, but as our name suggests, we wish this to be a network. If others in what can be called the Northern Rockies want to start their own indymedia efforts, we want to offer free resources for doing so (and can even offer subdomains and web support).
Finally, we are independent, we do not receive any corporate or government dollars. In fact, we are all volunteer activists who live in and around Bozeman.
Check us out, use the website, and even join our collective and get involved with our work. Without your direct participation, this project does not succeed. We look forward to seeing your contributions at rockyMT.org.
