Through our on-going ‘research in the wild’ activities involving the design, deployment and evaluation of situated digital displays within a rural village community (called Wray) we have observed members of the village demonstrating the confidence to carry out their own ‘hacking’ of third places within the village, e.g. taking the lead in installing the digital displays in the village Pub. However, in terms of possessing the knowledge to ‘hack together’ their own technologies there appears to be evidence that the so-called ‘digital divide’ is still a prevalent feature limiting the capacity for rural communities such as Wray to carry out their own technology hacking.
