DiY WiFi

DiY WiFi: Re-imagining Connectivity (Palgrave  Pivot 2014) explores the culture of a new digital technology – Wireless Fidelity (WiFi) – located outside conventional information communication technology (ICT) innovation contexts. Based on extensive fieldwork, this research into community WiFi networking explores the innovative digital cultures of ordinary people making extra-ordinary things. Committed to making ‘ournet, not the internet’, these digital tinkerers re-inscribe wireless broadband technology with new meanings and re-imagined possibilities of use.
