Read Between the Lines of Code (2016)

 

When it comes to the role of technology in everyday human life, the gist of public debate is increasingly pessimistic as machines and digitalisation seem to de-, or re-socialise people. This thesis looks at free and open source software development and at the individual and communal learning methods that flow from these technological practices.

 

Read Between the Lines {of Code} calls into question how technology is potentially flowing from, towards and in between individuals. Studying technological practices, rather than the technologies themselves shows how they are inherently social and cultural.
