user-driven initiatives Prosumer
Project description

The aim is to investigate the ways in which new socio-technical arrangements, particularly user-driven initiatives, are defining the figure of prosumer regarding digital environments and ICT development. Thus to clarify how they help us to rethink both the traditional division between production and consumption and the relationship between the discourse on ICT development and current changes in their usage.
