Thu, 11/01/2018 - 14:30

We deserve to have other technologies, something better than what we nowadays call "Information and Communication Technologies". This book delves into the guiding principles of technological sovereignty and proposes new theoretical and practical descriptions of some initiatives developing free technologies. It deals with its psychological, social, political, ecological and economic costs while it relates experiences to create Technological Sovereignty. The authors bring us closer to other ways of desiring, designing, producing and maintaining technologies. Experiences and initiatives to develop freedom, autonomy and social justice while creating autonomous mobile telephony systems, simultaneous translation networks, leaks platforms, security tools, sovereign algorithms, ethical servers and appropriate technologies among others. The texts are by Alex Hache, Benjamin Cadon, COATI, Carolina, Claudio Agosti, Elleflâne, Framasoft + AMIPO, Ippolita, Kali Kaneko, Loreto Bravo, Maxigas and Margarita Padilla.
This second volume expands and completes the first book on the subject launched in 2014 that spoke about free software, hardware and Internet, autonomous servers, decentralized social networks, digital public libraries and cryptocurrencies, but also presented the places where these projects are launched, the hacklabs, fablabs and biolabs.
