The MAZI project is developing a toolkit for building local, community wireless networks using Raspberry Pis. We are inviting you to join us for talks and stories of how we used this technology in practice. The symposium will present case studies from our pilot studies in Berlin, Zurich, London and northern Greece, along with talks by invited speakers. Building on the context of our own MAZI experiences, we will broaden out the debate with perspectives from outside the project.
Symposium speakers include:
Chris Csíkszentmihályi, Madeira Interactive Technology Institute, and the Rootio Project
Janis Lena Meissner, Digital Civics at Open Lab, Newcastle University, UK
Denise Allan, Wee Replicators, Edinburgh, UK
Elizabeth Wright & Loyane Bianchini, Reverso, São Paulo, Brazil
Adnan Hadzi, Digital Arts, University of Malta
Jeremy Singer, FRμIT: The Federated RaspberryPi Micro-Infrastructure Testbed. Glasgow University, UK
Where next? Future directions and challenges.
To end the symposium day, we will present a panel debate with speakers, titled: From Do-It-Yourself to Do-It-Together: Perspectives on the future use of community networking technologies for grassroots social impact.
