Digital Emancipation, as opposed to digital inclusion, aims at income generation and identity development rather than "bridging the digital divide." While access to digital networks is increasing, there is less confidence and verified outcomes related to job opportunities, entrepreneurship, solidarity, and organization of civil society. Digital Emancipation refers to the liberating potential of policy and technological options.Edit

- Building a rural wireless mesh network
- In addition to local opportunities, connecting one node to the Internet opens up new opportunities for the local community. The image may work for other cards (copy and cross reference). - Kim Tucker 17:39, 22 August 2012 (UTC)
- Perhaps also consider for "Community Networks" - Kim Tucker 22:00, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Save for another pack
The images listed below are unsuitable for this pack:
- My preference is generally to illustrate or suggest (in an abstract or concrete way) the essence of the pattern. I agree that this one is a rough one to find images for. Note that it's not talking about software etc. that is free, but socio-technological systems that promote emancipation for the users. From the pattern, "Digital emancipation, as opposed to digital inclusion, aims at income generation and identity creation rather than merely "bridging the digital divide." While access to digital networks is increasing, especially within developing countries, there is less confidence and actual, verified outcomes when it comes to job opportunities, entrepreneurship, solidarity, and organization of civil society. Digital Emancipation refers to greater autonomy and skills to avoid, when necessary, automation and digitalization when necessary, rather than an overall commitment to a "digital life." New forms of exchange, gifts, collaboration, and collective action involve not only technical choices but a fundamental consideration for the emancipatory potential of policy and technological options." - Doug Schuler - 01:56, 18 August 2012
