free reading copy new book: "What is Community Informatics? (and Why Does It Matter)"

I have long been interested in the theory that underpins informatics, especially the overlap between the different informatics schools. Here are details of a new publication that debates the status and role of community informatics.

Allow me to bring to the attention of list members the recent publication of the book:

"What is Community Informatics? (and Why Does It Matter)",

by Prof. Michael Gurstein and published by Polimetrica.

Thanks to author and publisher, the book has been licensed through the terms of an Attribution-NonCommercial Creative Commons license that allows the reader to freely distribute the work for non-commercial purposes.

You can download a copy of the book.

Many thanks!
