The alternative Internet(s) – state of the art and the possible futureThe alternative Internet(s) – state of the art and the possible future

El pasado 15 y 16 de septiembre se dieron cita una treintena de expertos internacionales para debatir los posibles futuros de Internet.

La sede fue la prestigiosa London School of Economics LSE y estuvo organizado con el soporte del Institut des sciences de la communication CNRS / Paris-Sorbonne.

De Cataluña fuimos invitados un par de personas de la comunidad guifi.net, con el fin de explicar los 10 años de trayectoria de la red abierta.

El workshop internacional intentó reunir ideas para futuras líneas de trabajo conjunto entre instituciones y entidades de innovación. A partir de este encuentro se dibujaron proyectos, alianzas y posibles publicaciones.

The alternative Internet(s) – state of the art and the possible future

Title: Some issues concerning the relation between Open Networks, Creativity and Urban Mobility.

Abstract:

The construction of open infrastructure has been contributing to the efficiency in the provision of connectivity in disadvantaged areas for over 10 years. Examples of this phenomenon are guifi.net and Freifunk, among other communities. These projects, however, have not yet proved benefits other than the provision of connectivity to those who lack it. We need to pose the following questions:

Can the collaboration between creative communities and citizen movements strengthen the construction of a social Internet supported by Open Networks?

Will the Open Networks be able to generate their own services or will they always depend on services which already exist within the monopolistic networks?

Could the Open Networks provide mobile connectivity within the urban space in an effective way?
