Although it is incredibly valuable to have a general understanding of what is going on in the world, I prefer getting in depth about a certain topic. I also tend to not like reading newspapers and this site struck me as being of a similar genre but on the net. In addition, like all media, I worry about getting a well rounded and accurate picture of what is going on. This is not to say that I don't support websites that promote the end of injustice, but I know it is easy to be influenced to support a cause without proper consideration of every side.

I don't know if I liked Indymedia
I had a difficult time with Indymedia and I am not sure how I feel about it. I felt like my attention was diverted to too many places. Although all of the articles seemed to have a common thread of considering injustices, I thought it was overwhelming to be loaded with so many stimulating stories at once.
