I'm very excited to have been asked to participate in authoring a book that combines a discussion of the politics of the internet with basic information on how the internet works.
The result of this collaboration amongst members of the Mayfirst/Peoplelink network is "The Organic Internet: Organizing History's Largest Social Movement". You can pick up a copy for $7.00 at lulu.com or download the pdf version for free.
The book features:
The Organic Internet by Alfredo López
The Political Techie by Jamie McClelland
Domain Names by Alfredo López
The Internet Protocol by Eric Goldhagen
Technical Architecture Shapes Social Structure by Daniel Kahn Gillmor
The Email Crisis by Jamie McClelland
FOSS and Proprietary Software by Amanda B. Hickman
