<nettime> Journal of Peer Production #9 "Alternative Internets"

Dear nettimers,

I normally don't forward announcement, but this one might be of
particular interest, since it updates many of the issues that have been
at the core of our discussions. And, the JPP has one of the most
interesting -- and useful -- review processes I know of. All there for
your reading pleasure.


Journal of Peer Production #9 "Alternative Internets"

The Journal of Peer Production editorial team is delighted to announce
our latest release, JoPP #9, "Alternative Internets" edited by Félix
Tréguer, Panayotis Antoniadis and Johan Söderberg.

As always, the peer review process - including original submissions,
reviews, revised papers, and signals - is accessible.

The issue is available for free here:

From the Introduction: The hopes of past generations of hackers weigh
like a delirium on the brains of the newbies. Back in the days when
Bulletin Board Systems metamorphosed into the Internet, the world's
digital communications networks - hitherto confined to military,
corporate and elite academic institutions - were at grasping reach of
ordinary individuals.

To declare the independence of the Internet from nation states and the
corporate world seemed like no more than stating the bare facts. Even
encrypted communication - the brainchild of military research - had
leaked into the public's hands and had become a tool wielded against
state power. Collectives of all stripes could make use of the new
possibilities offered by the Web to bypass traditional media, broadcast
their own voice and assemble in new ways in this new public sphere. For
some time, at least, the Internet as a whole embodied "alternativeness."
