If you’re interested in exploring how blockchain can take on a subversive and anti-systemic character in favour of movements and groups that wish to act outside institutional frameworks, the Integral Cooperative of Heraklion (I.C.Her) is organizing an open event on blockchain on Friday, June 7, in Heraklion-Crete. (For more background info on the I.C.Her, see this short article by Heteropolitics researcher George Dafermos). The event, which will be hosted at Da, will look at blockchain’s radical features and discuss its potential effect on the mode of organization of society.
The Community Network Manual: How to Build the Internet Yourself, which has just been published online, includes two chapters co-authored by Heteropolitics partner Panayotis Antoniadis (of NetHood), which should be of interest to readers of this blog: In ‘Complementary Networks Meet Complementary Currencies: Guifi.net Meets Sardex.net‘, Antoniadis et al. look at Guifi.net and Sardex, while in ‘What Could Blockchain do for Community Networks‘, Antoniadis et al. explore the role that blockchain technology could play for community networks.
