Freedom Tower and the Autonomous Internet - Peer to Peer User-Owned Communications and Computing Infrastructure
In a comprehensive report, Gordon Cook brings together a collection of articles and interviews, specifications and outlooks on the subject of the user-owned mesh communications infrastructure that was experimentally introduced and run by Isaac Wilder at Occupy Wallstreet’s Zuccotti Park.
Isaac is also one of the initiators of the Free Network Foundation, a non profit that has a precise target: the prototyping and construction of citizen-owned network infrastructure everywhere. The report takes a look at that as well. It is available for download as a PDF (59 pages) here:
