Kevin Kelly — Street Use
This site features the ways in which people modify and re-create technology. Herein a collection of personal modifications, folk innovations, street customization, ad hoc alterations, wear-patterns, home-made versions and indigenous ingenuity. In short — stuff as it is actually used, and not how its creators planned on it being used. As William Gibson said, “The street finds its own uses for things.”
Cool stuff! I particularly like the idea of baking cookies on your dashboard… not only do you have a snack for the ride home but imagine how good the car smells (compared to one of those little “stink pads” hanging from the rearview mirror)!
and I think people would have a good start on innovating if parents don’t show kids the only way to play with a toy and instead encourage them to use things in novel ways.
