Participate in a Community Wireless Networks Study

Cédric Calvignac, a French PhD student, is conducting a study of Community Wireless Networks around the world. If you’d like to participate, please read below.

I’m a French PhD student in sociology. My research focuses on “innovations made by and for users”. I have decided to particularly focus on “Wireless Community Networks” which are illustrative of a new type of approach more autonomous, alternative and civic. For the last two years, I have been interviewing French members of “Wifi Community Networks”; I talked with them about their commitment and about the life of their project. Now, I carry on with my research and I propose you to answer to my questionnaire. This questionnaire will enable me to gather data on a wider population: members of European and North American “Wireless Communities”.

I invite you to follow this link:

Answer the questionnaire should not take you more than a few minutes. Personal informations will be kept anonymous. Survey results will be communicated and freely accessible.

I would be very grateful to you if you could circulate my questionnaire among your contacts (in your own wifi community). Thanks for your answer and for message diffusion.

I am at your disposal for any questions or commentary.

Best regards.

P.S.: If possible, can you please indicate at the end of the questionnaire where do you come from (city) and the name of your wifi network.
