Vodafone’s Receiver magazine on communities
Receiver is Vodafone’s magazine for future thinkers, attracting a wide range of influential writers and industry leaders. It is conceived as a neutral space, where pioneer thinkers challenge readers to discuss exciting and future-oriented aspects of communications technologies.

It includes contributions by Nokia’s Stephen Johnston on web 3.0; David Weinberger, author of Everything Is Miscellaneous, on what the web is for; Don Tapscott and Anthony Williams, co-authors of ‘Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything’, on harnessing collaboration outside and inside the corporation; MIT researcher Joshua Green on the shifting way social relations are structured via media content and technological devices; Charles Leadbeater, author of ‘We-Think: You are what you share’, on mass creativity and the arrival of a society in which participation will be the key organising idea; Laura Forlano on her research into the communities that form around WiFi hotspots and the emerging mobile work practices of “Generation Mesh“; Edward Castronova and Mark Bell‘s look at the fun, the money and the friendships synthetic worlds have to offer; Ekkehart Baumgartner on the consumer revolution; and Dan Phillips‘ look at social networks and playfulness – or in his own words “how is technology changing what we mean by friendship and what does it hold in the future?”.
