Abstract:

This volume explores alternative cultural encounters with and around information technologies, encounters that counter dominant, Western-oriented notions of media consumption. The contributors include media practices as forms of cultural resistance and subversion, 'DIY cultures', and other non-mainstream models of technology production and consumption. The contributors - leading thinkers in science and technology studies, anthropology, and software design - pay special attention to the specific inflections that different cultures and communities give to the value of knowledge.
