Party Line: Issue #2: The Futel Party Line

by Karl Anderson

This issue of Party Line begins, "What will Futel's role be in the coming end times? As an organization whose core strategy is to glean discarded equipment on its way to the smelter and toxic waste dump and turn it into installations which provide tools, information, and entropy to anyone who walks up to them, we are familiar with operating in the margins." The zine chronicles the year 2016 for the rogue payphone network Futel. Shows photos of their phone installations, includes touching and amusing excerpts from the operators' log, and an article about phone phreaking and the creator's history of hacking the phone system, which he compares with transit fare evasion as a political act.
