What is meant by ‘free media’? What makes media free? Which role does finance play in this context? Whose money? On the basis of which agreements? Which role does participation play in this context? Who participates and why? Do people want to participate? Who takes which responsibility? How are themes positioned in different media? How do free media, public and commercial media comply with each other in regard to the positioning of themes, in how far are they conform? Are there themes that are tabooed in all kinds of media? Why? What are the conditions for quality productions? In how far does the quality of media products contribute to critical political consciousness?

In form of a discursive investigation the positioning of women in the context of computer production, IT-business, software development in relation to technical talent and the interest in technical developments, embedded in a male-dominated world of industry and production, was researched. Free access to equipment and training was one of the major demands raised.
