BBC News: Pioneering net community sold off. Those who know me know I’ve had a Well account and mail address for the last six years. How interesting that this community, which has gone through turmoil and sale after sale is having to be sold on again. I don’t know who thinks they can make money out of a community of Californian liberals and like-minded people, but Salon clearly thinks they can’t anymore. Took them long enough to realise!
