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."
