<nettime> the return of the network commons

Hi,

some of you have probably already noticed this via fb or rss, I am writing a
new book on, working title, "The Rise of the Network Commons".

It returns to the topos of the wireless commons on which I worked during
the early 2000s. In this new version, combining original research from
my German book Freie Netze (2004) and new research conducted in the
context of the EU funded project Confine, the exciting world of wireless
community network projects such as Guifi.net and Freifunk, gets
interspersed with philosophical reflections on the relationship between
technology, art, politics and history.

In chapters yet to come, I want to treat this topic more
internationally, thus interested to learn about projects from all over
the world. Currently, I am preparing the next chapter on "social
technologies" starting with firmware hack of OpenWrt in 2003 aftre GPL
violation. What interest me in particular is the relationship between
development of a technology and its usage, follwoing notions such as
participatory design and social technologies ... again, grateful for any
useful hints, experiences, stories

Here is the work in progress
http://thenextlayer.org/NetworkCommons

Even if a chapter is already written, it does not mean that it has
achieved stable form. I am happy to accomodate input on all aspects of
the project. Publishing early draft texts is part of my chosen
methodology in this case

looking foreard to hearing from you
best
Armin
