We have now got a real name on the internet. Its official www.truenorthperspective.com is our new website. We still have a lot of work to do getting the homepage ready for internet traffic, but all the archives and articles are now available. Any of the old links will not work anymore. The only way to access the old articles is to go through our archives.
Also, True North is not spam, over the next few weeks we will be putting out instructions on how to help get our newsletter through and not blocked at all. Well that's the plan anyway.
Also, we will have a subscribe/unsubscribe option on our homepage. Meanwhile, if you do not want to receive the newsletter, just hit the reply button, and let us know that you wish to be taken off. The same applies to adding additional email addresses.

Common wisdom had it that all creation consisted of an island of stars and nebulae known as the Milky Way surrounded by infinite darkness. We like to think we’re smarter than that now.
