Call for Papers: 'free' Edited by Trebor Scholz and Rachel Cobcroft
Today, freedom is far from free. Network and hardware access bears often ignored costs. 'Free and open' at times means 'closed and expensive'.
Freedom can be conceptualised to fit innumerable agendas. Freedom is the freedom to say no, to withdraw your collaboration, to refuse friendly cooperation. To be free is to live one's contradictions. But whose freedom do we praise? There is no solace in the liberty of being employed but poor, surveilled and uninsured.
