Okay, another questions for the oldies - I know, vaguely, that the zine fair was one of the original TiNA events. Was it originally a guerilla event or did it have some sort of official sanction?
I'm interested in the history here - how something could go from being an extremely cheap (or was it free?) event to something considerably more expensive than other zine fairs.

Hi Zine Folks, 
The zines stalls at the TiNA fair this year are $45, plus you need your own public liability insurance - what do you think about this? Is is affecting your decision to have a stall or to attend TiNA? I wrote to the organisers about it and they told me "It's not the TiNA of ten years ago" - so I am trying not to feel too much like an old whinger. Still, I think it's discouraging and kind of kills the zine community aspect of the fair, which was what was good about it in the first place.
