Drawing on global civil society literatures and recent network theory, this chapter analyzes how civil society and commercial wireless networks generate feelings of transnational or cosmopolitan relationality that allow wirelessness to create a sense of ongoing change and expansion. More philosophically it asks: How can we differentiate the senses of world at work in wirelessness as a contemporary determination of a world?

Keywords:   civil society, commercial wireless networks, relationality, wirelessness
