In today's society, data privacy and infrastructural centralisation have become primary concerns. Existing Internet governance, laws and structures are being challenged. With increasing distrust in 'The Cloud' comes a broad call for publicly owned network infrastructures; infrastructures that would give users greater control over their personal communication, data and identities.
This workshop will introduce participants to basic building blocks of Computer networking, Command Line interface and WiFi communication. Small servers will be built and configured to create personal wireless networks. These servers will then allow their users to publish images, text and other media directly into the ether.
No prior knowledge of computer networking, programming or command line interaction is required.
