Technical Environment

In this section we explore the range of technological hardware and content that constitute the digital environment. To guide the discussion of the technological layers, we adapt the model pioneered by Benkler – three critical layers; the underlying infrastructure of the network (layer0); the logical design that defines the network’s laws or rules (layer1); and finally the content (layer2), the knowledge, information, art, media, etc., that is produced, disseminated, shared and collaborated on over this network structure.
