Subject: Re: <nettime> A DIY Data Manifesto by Scott Gilbertson


the internet shutdown in egypt prompted similar questions about
independent infrastructure and corporate control.

see for example http://www.openmeshproject.org/ and the comment thread
on https://blog.torproject.org/blog/recent-events-egypt.

i know that some people were busy setting up BBS in egypt during the
shutdown, which has some interesting echoes of rushkoff's recent piece
on the Next Net ('dump internet, go fidonet')
