We use a three-layer analogy to understanding functioning and governance of the complex network that is the internet: the internet is comprised of the socio-economic layer, the logic layer and the infrastructure layer. Autonomous infrastructure referes to the infrastructure layer and how there are resistance efforts to build alternative networks that reflect the values and principles of local communities. These infrastructures are not only a set of servers, routers, cables, protocols, antennas and devices, but take care of the human and community dimension too. Examples include autonomous Internet and cell phone networks, community intranets and autonomous servers, which have been growing in recent years.
