NEW YORK CITY HACKERS BY Stig-Lennart Sørensen PART 3 OF 3
On the Fieldwork:
My chosen field was hackers, and the places I choose to conduct my fieldwork in were New York City, USA, and the Internet. The City became the economic, social and political framework of my field; a hub where important events, people and history central to the field of hackers appeared.
Geographically the field even extended south and north to the nations capital where many of my Internet informants lived and up north to Boston where I visited the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where the hack was born. The City itself was a bottomless source of data: bewildering in all its manifestations and diversity.
