SECURITY QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Your question about security and safety is a broad one and I am not sure what you are after.
If you are looking for heavy duty personal safety, terrorist threat, etc., Contingency Preparation Consultants, (805) 647-4329 are tops as far as I know. They do workshops, training, put out literature and maintain a good bibliography.
If you are talking mail into limited access areas, plain envelopes, no postage meter use and have someone who is security conscious read before mailing. Words that show a group or organization at work, talk politics, talk evangelism, church planting, etc. (changing the national religion or ways), use “Christian vocabulary”, ask how many were saved etc., discuss organizational news or church news regading the addressee are out.
Do not mail religious material or items unless asked. Ask people in the field what security rules they want you to follow. Phone and fax are similar to mail. E-mail is similar but can be encripted and with passwording, compression, etc. is relatively safe. Hope this helps, GR
MARC’S JOHN ROBB GIVES GREEN LIGHT FOR BRIGADA
As you might recall, our original time line called for going “public” on April 2nd. At this point, I’m feeling we might be able to better that milepost, aren’t you? Maybe we can shoot for March 1st now to open the conference up broadly? That’ll give us still another month to work out the kinks and get some flow going. We picked up the Argentina conference today. That’s La Plata, the city that Pete Wagner and company visited over the past few years. We also heard back from the Kazakh Partnership Letter editor and they’re going to try to scan in their newsletter to produce ascii text. If we can pull it off, that’ll give us the Kazakh start that we need. I believe we’re at the point that we can go to the Crimean Tatar group now…. Still, don’t let me rush us if you feel we ought to hold back some more … I have a tendency to want to move fast on this kind of thing…. Thanks again for your help!
John Robb just replied, “Doug, You are the best one to decide the time. If you have enough feedback and are satisfied that you have all the bases covered, then go ahead. Perhaps a pilot version, more scaled down could be launched first to see how it works and to get the bugs out of it.

SUB-CONFERENCES READY FOR ACTION!
In about 2 minutes, you’ll receive a reply from the hub with all conferences listed. You can then subscribe to any of the other lists using the same approach. Send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org and write in the body (not subject) of the message:
The “end” is optional but recommended, esp. in the cases of services that put a ‘signature file’ on the end of your message.
