[liberationtech] Suggestions for a course

Possibly useful for your course...

While this book (my 1996 Addison-Wesley book New Community Networks)  
doesn't focus on the older technologies it does discuss them to some  
degree. To recommend it for your  consideration I'd say that I was not  
trying to say that the Internet was intrinsically wonderful or evil  
(as many other writings seemed to be) but that there was an  
opportunity to help shape it in something that supported human values  
and that that opportunity was likely to be time sensitive.

The book is online at http://www.publicsphereproject.org/ncn/ in a  
particularly dated and somewhat embarrassing form.
