woodstock.22.0: WELL Woodstock Project Email (festival) Thu 11 Aug 94 14:34 From the net (with permission to be posted here) woodstock.22.1: WELL Woodstock Project Email (festival) Thu 11 Aug 94 14:37 Mailed to email@example.com : From: "James Diaz" I understand that ticket sales are below expectations. I'm afraid to = think that this event may not reach the fantastic proportions of the = original. My belief is that Woodstock '69 was such a cultural coup simply = by the fact that its audience was enormous. True, with the advent of this = "info hiway" among other communication means this will possibly be the = largest "attended" human event in history. You must be conscious of the = fact that the charm and appeal of Wood '69 was more a tactile experience. = And, in as much as we have not perfected the VR aspects of the Internet, = I think the result could be terribly anti-climactic. But good luck to = all, regardless. Please prove me wrong. woodstock.22.2: Anna Couey (couey) Thu 11 Aug 94 19:54 NAME : Dan Matte EMAIL : firstname.lastname@example.org LOCATION: Vancouver, BC Canada COMMENTS: Too young in '69, too far in '94.

What about the Pepsicola Corporation? and its role in, among other places (places other than Woodstock, that is), Burma??? JZ c/o JT Date: Sat, 13 Aug 1994 15:59:12 -0400 (EDT) From: John Trumpbour Subject: BOYCOTT PEPSI! To all and sundry! i hate to rain on anyone's parade (except maybe a major corporation's)... there's been enough rain at woodstock... but I'd be interested in knowing if word about the "BOYCOTT PEPSI" Campaign is getting around at this Fesival of Peace! etc... it has to do with Pepsi and Burma and money and military men who kill people and keep the Nobel Peace Prize Winner for 1991; Aung San Suu Kyi, in prison in her own home... i suppose people might have investigated Pepsicola, Inc. a little more closely before inviting them to sponsor the event, no? Alas! this was not to be... Well,..... it's never to late to start doing the right thing! check out the information posted to the 'general' topic at the "official" woodstock internet site BulletinBoard on Pepsi&Burma. Thanks!

Thought I'd pop in and say hi. I'm listening to the festival on BBC radio 1 live. Most excellent.

At least I don't have to sleep in the mud! :-) Have a good one. Glenn.
