Ever wondered what a “community wireless network” is? Want to learn how to share an Internet connection in your community? Check out this interview with The Detroit Community Technology Project on The Next Idea, a project of Michigan Radio whose mission is to share “new innovations and ideas that will change our state.”
We are excited to introduce the 11 seed grantees awarded funding in 2015 for community-controlled communications infrastructure projects. These projects use a community organizing process to plan, build and govern a shared communications infrastructure in their city or region.
The Detroit Community Technology Project (DCTP) and the Detroit Digital Justice Coalition (DDJC) are excited to present the Opening Data zine. The Opening Data zine offers a primer on open data, real-world examples of data discrimination, use cases of data in organizing, creative data storytelling, and more.
In partnership with the Detroit People Platform and the Detroit Digital Justice Coalition, presents the “Data DiscoTech.” This event will explore the potential benefits of open data to grassroots communities. The event is open to the public and will take place on September 19th, 11:00 am - 3:00 pm at the Samaritan Behavioral Center (5555 Conner St.).
