Grass­roots Radio at the 9th Inter­na­tion­al Con­fer­ence on Com­mu­ni­ties & Tech­nolo­gies

Last Thurs­day, June 6th, Grass­roots Radio was in Wien at the 9th Inter­na­tion­al Con­fer­ence on Com­mu­ni­ties & Tech­nolo­gies. A paper regard­ing the activ­i­ties the pro­jec­t’s part­ners under­took to obtain the broad­cast­ing license was pre­sent­ed to an audi­ence of researchers, design­ers, edu­ca­tors, indus­try, and stu­dents with a com­mon inter­est for the con­nec­tions between com­mu­ni­ties – in their mul­ti­ple forms – and infor­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­nolo­gies.

The paper describes the strong influ­ence of insti­tu­tions (norms, rules, gov­er­nance struc­tures, etc.) in the design and estab­lish­ment of tech­nolo­gies for sup­port­ing the com­mu­ni­ties, like RootIO. The authors of the paper are Rober­to Cib­in, Mau­r­izio Teli and Sarah Robin­son, mem­bers of the pro­jec­t’s con­sor­tium.

The abstract of the paper is avail­able at this link.
