book-cover My book Social Movements and Their Technologies. Wiring Social Change has been released on November 6, 2013. The release closes a circle which started in spring 2005 in Jerusalem, via Florence (Italy), California, Switzerland, Hungary, Canada, and finally the Netherlands. I am indebted to many people, among whom are Donatella della Porta, Arne Hintz, Bob Hackett, John Downing, Sandra Braman, Charlotte Ryan... and Chiara, Joel, Anja, Tobi, Mi Ah, and all my friends and colleagues who stood by my side in all these years. It is dedicated to Gino and Silvana, my parents and first school of social justice, and to the many activists and techies who strive to make of this world a better place.

The book explores the interplay between social movements and their liberated technologies and communication infrastructure. Read more about the book here.
