Eva Iris Otto gives Tech Terrace Talk

DISTRACT PhD fellow Eva Iris Otto was invited to give a Tech Terrace Talk at the KULT network for ethnologists and anthropologists together with developer Nynne Just Christoffersen. Eva reported on her initial thoughts and findings from fieldwork among app developers in Denmark, and delivered a few broader points about IT developers and their work (the associated nature of software work and their relationship to financial structures). This led to interesting discussions with the other attendees about current ideals in IT and how ethnographers can approach the tech world.
