History: In the 90s (199? - 1999) appeared a paper called
COMPUTERFLOHMARKT (CF) here in Germany, Europe. The object of the
COMPUTERFLOHMARKT was to print announcements (sell/buy) for computers
and equipments. With the time it was also possible to send in
announcements for contacts, scene informations and discuss in articles.
Most of the people buyed the paper because of this last points and it
was a good way here in Germany to bring the scene to the country.
The paper was dead in the end of the 90s because of the Internet and the
deep track of the COMPUTERFLOHMARKT. The times changed but the
COMPUTERFLOHMARKT worked like in the beginning. Today we have the
Internet and you can't sell a paper just for selling and buying
computers and equipments. It's too slow in comparison to the Internet.
Another company in Berlin buyed the COMPUTERFLOHMARKT then and the scene
was looking for cooperation with the new company, but after two new
realises the company stopped the paper definitive. All trust from the
scene people was lost.

print the information to paper and give this to the world (this last

are looking for to work for and show the people in the back of the
computers - not for the computers and technologies self (like many other
