Coordinated by the Crackerjack Kid (aka Chuck Welch, editor, Eternal Network: A Mail Art Anthology, University of Calgary Press , 1995), the NC 92 Networker Databank consists of 443 indexed items generated by participants in the Decentralized World-Wide Networker Congress (August 1, 1991 -- March 15, 1992). This approximately year long event was composed of dozens of small congresses during which self-identified "Networkers" convened to discuss issues relevant to the present and future of networking culture as well as concerns relevant to copy art, mail art, computer art, cassette recordings, underground publications, etc.
