    6464Our work is divided into two parts: resource sharing and activism. While they are separate, both are related and viewed, in the bigger picture, as part of the same work.
    6565
    66 Resource sharing is what would normally be called "services". In this are, MF/PL has been involved in Internet service provision for over 14 years making us one of the oldest "providers" in the world, certainly among the oldest politically progressive providers. But we are not a provider. Aside from membership dues, our members pay nothing for services. Our members collaborate on everything including provider "technical support". All our processes, including discussions about our policies and future plans, are transparently carried on on system that encourage participation by all members.
    67 
    68 Activism. MF/PL works in coalitions of all kinds, participates in events, works on campaigns of all types. Most prominent among these is probably our leading work at the US Socia Forum of 2007 during which we organized and led the technology workgroup that provided for all technology (on and off line) at the event. There were 37 technologists working in the group from all parts of this country.

    157 MF/PL is, in itself, a kind of coalition. We have been involved as well in many coalition efforts including the United States Social Forum (as technology leaders with members on the National Planning Committeee) and the NYC Grass Roots Media Conference. We are involved in working with more than a dozen organizations on various activities involving a wide range of issues.
