"This primer, with a foreword by Vinton G. Cerf, offers an overview of Internet governance, discussing its history, the issues at stake and the various actors involved.

(más info: A Primer on Internet Governance)

* DiY SURVIVAL (There is no subculture only subversion) (descargable en formato pdf).

"Do it yourself survival is a collection of essays, tips and case studies collated from an online call for participation by C6. The eclectic mix presented within these pages shows the breadth and current diversity of art/activism practice today from around the world. Whether that is creating wireless networks, pissing on national monuments or building cardboard friends, it is certain that these submissions show that practitioners are taking their work to new spaces and audiences, redefining, through the engagement with the community, what we have considered to be "art"."

* Copyrights and copywrongs: The rise of intellectual property and how it threatens creativity  Siva Vaidhyanathan, New York: New York University Press, 2001 (descargable en formato pdf por capítulos independientes).

"In Copyrights and Copywrongs, Siva Vaidhyanathan tracks the history of American copyright law through the 20th century, from Mark Twain's vehement exhortations for "thick" copyright protection, to recent lawsuits regarding sampling in rap music and the "digital moment," exemplified by the rise of Napster and MP3 technology. He argues persuasively that in its current punitive, highly restrictive form, American copyright law hinders cultural production, thereby contributing to the poverty of civic culture."

The Agrippa Files (no es exactamente un libro, es mucho más que eso, es William Gibson...).

Launch Date: Dec. 9, 2005

AGRIPPA (A BOOK OF THE DEAD) appeared in 1992 as a collaboration between artist Dennis Ashbaugh, author William Gibson, and publisher Kevin Begos, Jr.

THE AGRIPPA FILES is a scholarly site that presents selected pages from the original art book (with the permission of the publisher); a unique archive of materials dating from the book's creation and early reception; a simulation of what the book's intended "fading images" might have looked
like; a video of the 1992 "transmission" of the work; a "virtual lightbox" for comparing and studying pages from the book; commentary by the book's publisher and scholars; an annotated bibliography of scholarship, press coverage, interviews, and other material; a detailed bibliographic
description of the book; and a discussion forum.

BACKGROUND: Originally published in 1992, AGRIPPA (A BOOK OF THE DEAD) was a limited edition art book that contained double-column pages of DNA code laid out to allude to the Gutenberg Bible, copperplate aquatint etchings by Dennis Ashbaugh alluding to DNA gel patterns (some overprinted with antique newspaper advertisements of technological artifacts), and a "disappearing" poem about memory, family, youth, and mechanisms by William Gibson (on a read-once-only, self-encrypting diskette).  During the rise of the Internet and Web in the early 1990s, the poem and book were read as marking a symbolic transition from the codex book to digital media.  But in all this time, the physical book itself has rarely been seen.

THE AGRIPPA FILES was developed for the Transcriptions Project at the University of California, Santa Barbara, by a team from the English and Comparative Literature departments: Alan Liu, Paxton Heymeyer, James Hodge, Kimberly Knight, David Roh, and Lisa Swanstrom.

The launch of THE AGRIPPA FILES coincides with the anniversary of the Dec. 9, 1992, simulcast ("The Transmission") of images and readings from the original work at The Kitchen in New York City and other locations.
