Next Left Notes was founded in March, 2004, by Thomas Good, its current editor. Good and other NLN contributors were one source of the refoundation statement of SDS in January 2006.
Next Left Notes differs from New Left Notes, the publication of SDS in the 1960s from which it takes its name, in that it is not officially connected with SDS - although Good and other members of the NLN "collective" are members of Movement for a Democratic Society (MDS), the non-student entity that emerged from SDS at the National Convention in Chicago, IL in 2006.
