http://www.flickr.com/photos/wispa_rick_harnish/44998312/ I have some
of Mac up on a tower 200’ but I have filled up my allotment right now.
I am hoping to get an upgrade to a larger account very soon.
Concerning the press, we have been generating press releases and have
gotten responses from the Washington Post, Network World, LATimes and
the NYTimes to name a few. New America also did a nice piece last
week. Any help you can give in that department is appreciated. With
all the Katrina news lately, stories like this seem to get lost.

I wish 'our team' down South would put up more pictures-not
necessarily of the destruction, but of the work that they are doing.
Like Mac 200' up a tower, Matt on a roof top, people using our phones
and PC's, things like that.
Second-does anyone have a PR person on staff or 'related'? Other
groups are putting out the things they have done and getting press.
Our group should be showing some more press with pictures of people
using our installations.
Third-I sent out over the weekend 100 letter emails to
friends-relatives-co workers asking them to go to the www.wispa.org
<http://www.wispa.org> site and donate. A few responded back that they
did do it. Maybe when some have time you can do the same. I asked if
they could donate $10-$100-$1000, and I think Mac got a few $25's out
of it. Not much but buys some gas or healthier food. I just donated
another $100 myself.
