Commotion Construction Kit launch

Since 2010, we've worked with OTI, in collaboration with the Detroit Digital Justice Coalition, to build the Commotion Construction Kit (CCK). This project is a set of essential educational tools to show people how to plan, design, install and configure community wireless networks. Designed to be a living platform, the CCK is modular and open, utilizing a simple and accessible visual language. Through this approach, users are able to mix, remix and easily generate new materials that contribute to the kit. Our utilitarian approach to design also paves the way for multilingual translations. The CCK has been recently used to build community networks locally, nationally and internationally in Detroit and Brooklyn to India and Tunisia.
