This screen print looks ominous regarding the local radical Sydney Independent Media:
Postscript 3 Dec 2008: It's back up which is all to the better in the free speech agenda. We also dropped into Perth IMC which is vibrant. Then Adelaide, Melbourne and Brisbane (this last one at least as far as a google) and it looks like these are dormant or gone.
Meanwhile web 2.0 rushes ahead regardless. Did the radical geeks at IMC in big cities in Australia just go and get jobs and mortgages? Join even bigger more effective Get Up! Or as they say on the grassy knoll, something got to them?
Here in Sydney the Alternative Media Group (a privately owned business) is chugging along. And micro news SAM here of course. To complete the indy alternative news list would include Crikey.com.au and New Matilda which surely qualify as minor not micro news media.
