The authors highlight how the World Social Forum (WSF), the annual meeting held by members of the anti-globalization or alter-globalization movement, has unexpected consequences for communications. They particularly explore what they refer to as the cultural politics of technology within the social forums through a comparative analysis of the political goals and struggles associated with Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) use within the global, European and the U.S. social forum processes.
