What exactly is the Internet and what role does it play in our movement for social change?
In this collection of essays, May First/People Link techie-organizers explore this remarkable social movement:
* analyzing its growth and character as an expression of humanity's resistance and resilience;
* offering an analysis of how it impacts the progressive movement and how we should impact it;
* taking up Internet issues like access, race and gender, threats to the Internet's independence and freedom, free and open source software, spam, email, security and privacy, dns and other Internet protocols;
* and suggesting strategies for the use, protection and expansion of the Internet's technology.
