INTERVIEW | Digital Stewards Represent Detroit at the International Summit for Community Wireless in Berlin
In early October 2013, while the U.S. government’s shutdown and Detroit’s municipal bankruptcy filing were making international headlines, a delegation of four Detroiters shared their innovations in neighborhood-based communications infrastructure at the International Summit for Community Wireless in Berlin.
AMP recently completed its first full-length Digital Stewards program, a 20-week community technology training designed and implemented in partnership with the Open Technology Institute (OTI) of the New America Foundation.
In a recent blog post, the Open Technology Institute reports on their test deployment of the Commotion wireless networking tool at last year's Allied Media Conference. Commotion is an open-source communication tool that uses mobile phones, computers, and other wireless devices to create decentralized mesh networks.
Micha Cárdenas of the Electronic Disturbance Theater 2.0 will be presenting a performance of Local Autonomy Networks digital art project at the Allied Media Conference. This performance requires the production of 12 Autonets, mesh networked electronic garments.
