Private Line, started in 1994 as a journal focusing on telephony, hacking, and phreaking.
Not every zine was about punk. Tom Farley’s PRIVATE LINE was inspired by hacker/phreak zines like 2600, PHRACK, HACK-TIC and TAP. PRIVATE LINE was the product of Tom’s intellectual curiosity and a love of tinkering with phones. Featuring detailed documentation of pay-phone operating protocols, interviews with electronic security consultants, and other matters that made non-techies’ heads spin but were pure enjoyment for enthusiasts of all things telephonic. Farley discovered that self-producing the zine was too great an economic burden, but continued it as an online publication, http://www.privateline.com.
