Check out Kat Jungnickel’s preso on “Technology You Can’t Live Without” which describes the importance of duct tape!
I recently completed a sociology PhD during which I spent a year living with a community wifi group and also with a group of freakbike makers. During this research I noticed one particular technology central in both groups that was easily found, cheaply purchased and critical to their making practices…… Stickytape!
Stickytape is not only a technology you cannot live without but it is also a metaphor for life.
