The computer and particularly the Internet have been represented as enabling technologies, turning consumers into users and users into producers. The unfolding online cultural production by users has been framed enthusiastically as participatory culture. But while many studies of user activities and the use of the Internet tend to romanticize emerging media practices, this book steps beyond the usual framework and analyzes user participation in the context of accompanying popular and scholarly discourse, as well as the material aspects of design, and their relation to the practices of design and appropriation.Aside from the Xbox-Linux-Project, other opportunities for softmod were further developed and led to the production of easy-to-use cartridges and softmod manuals that helped less-skilled users to modify their game console.
