Book Review - Favela Digital: The Other Side of Technology
AbstractDavid Nemer's photo book provides snapshots on the lives of residents of the Brazilian favela of Vitoria and their appropriation of digital technology. It is a visual collection that is intriguing for researchers and accessible to the general public.Today, where a significant amount of human interactions are carried over ICTs, it is ever more important to address the rights of digital access, usability, usefulness and literacy around technology. Favela Digital provokes this discussion from the ground-up using words and visions from people living in the favelas, making the message concrete, plausibly accessible and generative for policy and design contributions.
