I just noticed that The FreeCycle Network, a US-based recycling Yahoo! based mailing list, has now been usurped by Freegle in the UK.

I just noticed that The FreeCycle Network, a US-based recycling Yahoo! based mailing list, has now been usurped by Freegle in the UK.

I really only noticed because my normally spic‘n’span inbox was swamped with Freegle posts, offering jungle theme lamps, biscuit tins, yoga on VHS etc. Having had a dig around, I can’t find any more info than appears on the History page -- did this break the technology news barrier or did it sneak by other people's radar too?
