STREET USE
http://www.kk.org/streetuse/

“This site features the ways in which people modify and re-create
technology. Herein a collection of personal modifications, folk
innovations, street customization, ad hoc alterations, wear-patterns,
home-made versions and indigenous ingenuity. In short — stuff as it is
actually used, and not how its creators planned on it being used. As
William Gibson said, “The street finds its own uses for technology.” I
welcome suggestions of links, and contributions from others to include
in this compendium.”
