  • Making Community Networks economically sustainable, the guifi.net experience

    Roger Baig; Lluís Dalmau; Ramon Roca; Leandro Navarro; Felix Freitag; Arjuna Sathiaseelan (2016)
    Projects: EC | netCommons (688768)
    Community networks have flourished around the world as a complementary model for enabling access to the Internet and its services. Nevertheless there is still an on-going debate on how to make them sustainable and scaleable beyond the voluntary effort and non-refundable contributions. The approach taken by Guifi.net has been to enable professional activity and to develop a set of tools to ensure the reinvestment of a fraction of the benefits of this professional activity. This has contributed...

    Local networks for local interactions: Four reasons why and a way forward

    Antoniadis, Panayotis (2016)
    Projects: EC | netCommons (688768)
    This paper frames the role of community (wireless) networks, and other forms of grassroots DIY networking models, as complementary to the Internet communication infrastructures hosting local services for facilitating local interactions, as drivers for a more convivial and sustainable life in the city. Today, only a few Internet-based global corporations mediate our everyday online interactions, without respecting our rights to privacy, freedom of expression and self-determination; they depend...

    Le coût écologique d’internet est trop lourd, il faut penser un internet low-tech

    Tréguer, Félix; Trouvé, Gaël (2017)
    Projects: EC | netCommons (688768)
    Tribune publiée dans « Reporterre ».; Le coût écologique d'internet est trop lourd, il faut penser un internet low-tech Félix Tréguer et Gaël Trouvé. 27 mai 2017. Tribune publiée sur Reporterre L'an dernier, un contributeur de la revue anglo-saxonne Phrack, publication phare de la mouvance hacker, appelait de ses voeux la constitution d'un front « hacker-luddite » pour lutter contre deux fléaux qui entravent selon lui la contribution de l'informatique à l'émancipation : les systèmes informati...

    Mobile crowdsensing incentives under participation uncertainty

    Micholia, Panagiota; Karaliopoulos, Merkourios; Koutsopoulos, Iordanis (2016)
    Projects: EC | netCommons (688768)
    Mobile crowdsensing applications rely on crowds of contributors who are willing to carry out certain tasks of interest. This willingness varies widely across users and tasks and (monetary) incentives are often engaged to strengthen it or make up for its total absence. These incentives need to carefully account for the highly non-homogeneous response of users to external motivation. We propose a framework that explicitly accounts for the implicit uncertainty about the eventual participatio...

    Critical Social Theory and Sustainable Development: The Role of Class, Capitalism and Domination in a Dialectical Analysis of Un/Sustainability

    Fuchs (2017)
    Projects: EC | netCommons (688768)
    Author version of: Fuchs, Christian. 2017. Critical Social Theory and Sustainable Development: The Role of Class, Capitalism and Domination in a Dialectical Analysis of Un/Sustainability. Sustainable Development 25 (6): 443-458. Full version: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/sd.1673/abstract Abstract It is still a relatively open question if and how sustainability fits into a critical theory of society. This paper's aim is to makes a contribution to the critical soci...

    First learn then earn

    Karaliopoulos, Merkourios; Koutsopoulos, Iordanis; Titsias, Michalis (2016)
    Projects: EC | netCommons (688768)
    We study the optimal design of mobile crowdsensing campaigns in terms of the aggregate quality of contributions attracted for a set of tasks. The interaction of the campaign with users is realized through a mobile app interface that recommends tasks to users and offers them incentives. The main contribution is a novel perspective on the payment distribution problem faced by the crowdsensing campaign organizer in light of originally unknown individual user preferences. Contrary to common pract...

    Peer-to-Peer Law: Further Reflections

    Dulong De Rosnay, Mélanie (2016)
    Projects: EC | netCommons (688768)
    In this paper, I infuse political and legal theory with peer-to-peer decentralized design features. This experiment studies how property and liability, two core legal institutions attached to individual persons, react and can be transformed (like chemical elements) when applied a peer-to-peer, distributed design, with an empirical and evolutionary approach of hacking the law, seen as a regulatory system. In this jurisprudential analysis unfolding the theory of distributed architecture, I stud...
