"The distribution of technological knowledge and self-building were had their peak in the 50's and 60's in terms of electronic technologies: back then the market was full of boxes for people to follow instructions and build their own stuff, and amateur magazines that brought technological knowledge (with less filters compared to today) that was readily available. The resources were scarcer, but the transmission of knowledge was easier. Then with the evolution of the complexity of circuits and growing electronic consumption, the knowledge of basic phenomena withered away and the level of “fiddling” was raised to levels that don't implicate the contact with “naked metal”, but instead with mouse and keyboard, networks and wi-fi. It's another universe of knowledge, that has little or no point of contact with what's behind it but without which it could not exist."

Peppo Lasagna, from "The ecology of Laboratorio Elettronico Popolare" by Marco Mancuso
