WebFOCUS Report
Project description
The project examines the way self-organised communities collaboratively shape digital artifact ecologies and their own IT infrastructure with minimal resources, mostly using everyday tools. These mechanisms are often unaccounted for in professional IT development or IT development research. Understanding them makes it possible to address the digital needs of communities currently leading societal change and challenging traditional modes of production and consumption.
