Access Reconfigured



Decentralized, End to end, Technology at the edges, Thought to be immune from control

Open access

Code is law

Internet can be made less regulable

Internet can be made more regulable


Previously sought as inclusion in something owned by someone else

Internet could be described as free to begin with, Should the internet be controlled at all?, Is public or private governance necessary or desirable?

New Public Interest

Open Platforms, Access to underlying technology, Ability to extend core protocols, Freedom to create new applications without restriction on how the underlying technologies are used

Open access to ideas, Freedom to use, change, republish ideas, Copyleft, Copyright is automatic, copyleft releases rights to allow the idea to be repurposed

Open Source, New paradigm of production, Centered around distribution, All ideas are public, decentralized: decisions made by the software community

Conversational interactivity, unfinished, allows different outcomes to be reached, predicated on open systems

Multiple publics, As opposed to one "public good" carved out by legislation, Allows participation of many groups representing many interests, Less concerned with defining "good"

Property Law

Relationship of community and the market

Commons is governed by rights, How a resource may be used is enshrined in law, Public Licenses, access without dividing for profit motivation



Copyright, Expanding restrictions to usage, Lengthening terms

Traditional production, Exclusive property rights, division of labor, reduction of transaction costs

Enclosing of once public resources, Forests in Britain, Users of the resource ultimately lose, Commercial use concentrates wealth

the AOL model, mediate access to internet resources, control or alter content to serve commercial interest, No access to underlying technology, closed to new applications

Natural rights, Right to what you create as private, Right to retain fruits of personality and labor, Extended to corporations as wells as individuals

Privacy and surveillance

Carnivore - FBI surveillance system trolls the internet for probative information

Community Media

Free from governance on the internet

harder to define

equal access automatically allows for multiple publics, a system that can produce innovation, unrestricted by profit motivation

defined by access and participation, "mud brick" technology, usable by anyone, based on open ideas, free spaces

In the past, defined by regulation

Quotas for local media

Public spectrum licenses

subsidies, tax incentives

attempts to embrace multiple publics hindered by limited resources and access

Altruistic and non-profit

adds community interests

promotes diversity of ideas


forces innovation by moving into spaces without permission

Route around attempts to stifle

Find new ways to reach their audience

Networked Society

ideas can have unintended consequences

community participation may become commonplace

community works against enclosure
