Over the last decade, the history of the web and all its “common” qualities, its digital folklore, has become a growing field of study. The role of the user giving form to his medium (its materials, customs, ideologies and aesthetic structures, which are closely connected to visual, textual and audio cultures) has become key to this research. Moreover, these coarse or unrefined DIY-fabrications have become (re-)appraised treasures or relics of amateur culture. This panel will reflect on different on/offline (dead and alive) DIY-networks focusing on their vulgar vernaculars, ideologies and customs, and on how we came to appraise them, taking us from geocities, to hyves and 4chan, from old to new networked vernaculars.
