About this book

Based on extensive fieldwork, Jungnickel's research into community WiFi networking explores the innovative digital cultures of ordinary people making extra-ordinary things. Committed to making 'ournet, not the internet', these digital tinkerers re-inscribe wireless broadband technology with new meanings and re-imagined possibilities of use.
