SRINIVASAN Ramesh, FISH Adam

After the Internet

John Wiley & Sons, 2017, 224 p., £15.

In the wake of Edward Snowden’s revelations, and concern that the internet has heightened rather than combatted various forms of political and social inequality, it is time we ask : What comes after a broken internet ? Ramesh Srinivasan and Adam Fish reimagine the internet from the perspective of grassroots activists and citizens on the margins of political and economic power. They explore how the fragments of the existing internet are being utilised alongside a range of peoples, places, and laws to make change possible. From indigenous and non-western communities and activists in Tahrir Square, to imprisoned hackers and whistleblowers, this book illustrates how post-digital cultures are changing the internet as we know it from a system which is increasingly centralized, commodified, and "personalized", into something more in line with its original spirit : autonomous, creative, subversive. The book looks past the limitations of the internet, reconceptualizing network technology in relation to principles of justice and equality. Srinivasan and Fish advocate for an internet that blends the local concerns of grassroots communities and activists with the need to achieve scalable change and transformation.
