Community Networking (CN) projects bring local people together to discuss their community's issues and opportunities, learn about communications processes and Internet technology, and decide upon and create services to address these community needs and opportunities. CN is comprised of a wide variety of groups that make up a community (e.g. libraries, universities, schools, local government, businesses, media, individuals), with special focus on including those who are traditionally left out of community decision-making in general, and technology decision making in particular (e.g. low-income, minorities, senior citizens). CN projects value collaboration and participation, and are usually noncommercial.
