Abstract

This chapter opens with an account of the theft of a core antenna from a community wireless network. This sets the scene for a study of WiFi that is socially, materially and culturally embedded in a specific place and made by a group of individuals who collectively re-inscribe broadband technology with new meanings and re-imagined possibilities of use. I outline cores themes emerging throughout the book and briefly introduce the chapters that follow.
