Dear Michael

Interesting to find developments related to Telecom services in the
Community sphere. Wondering if there are technical / business models for
Community Satellite / Cable TV networks and if it would be feasible for
small/moderate scale Community Cable networks to subscribe to TV channels
such as HBO. May not really be a priority service segment, but when Telecom
services, Cable are "bundled" with Community based Internet access, the
feasibility is considerably improved. Might also lead to solutions such as
separation of copyrighted content from open content.

> 3. Include a short file, which can be:
> • Media about a community-based telecom, e.g. a short text or audio
> description of an initiative
> • Art depicting interactions between existing infrastructures,
> community-based technologies and future infrastructures
> • A 2-page academic-style, position paper about infrastructures revealed
> by, or created for, community-based telecoms
> • Something else that pertains to the workshop topic and is accessible to
> both practitioners and academics
> You will be required to sign into Google in order to upload your document.
> Please submit up to one file (document, PDF, image, audio, video, zip) of
> up to 100MB in size. All submissions must be in English.
> We will select participants based on how their submissions contribute
