What is CIASP Diary?

Basic FAQs for ""

The underlying principles of this CIASP Diary blog site are:
  • CIASP Diary is the blog-site for Canadian CIASP/CEPIA members, but all international CIASPers and Amigos Anonymous are welcome.
  • It's a site to post notes, observations, information, pictures and messages about the CIASP/CEPIA/CIPE experience in Mexico.
  • It's a blog site for posting news, updates, notices or any information related to CIASP veterans or others connected to CIASP.
  • There is no specific political or philosophical agenda associated with this site. CIASP was a student driven movement emerging out of 1960 youthful ideals. Our collective hopefulness bound us together, and any personal philosophical orientations were sublimated to our hope of making a difference. Forty years later, we judge those days against a lifetime of experience, — and realize that CIASPers represented a broader range of philosophies than we suspected in our youth. CIASP Diary is not committed to a single uniform philosophical viewpoint and is open to all former members.
  • Anyone can respond to postings with short messages by clicking on the "post comment" link below every main posting. To minimize unwanted spam and commercial postings, a random key word is generated within and must be entered before a message will be posted.

Responses do not appear until after they are screened, and will not be posted if they are offensive or irrelevant to CIASP.
