Resumen


Internet connectivity and the media are immersed in different aspects of our lives, sometimes in our daily activities and sometimes at specific moments. However, this condition of naturalness or obviousness is much more complex and diversified because several aspects are combined. The first is the type of access, which corresponds to the infrastructures and public policies that allow or hinder their access and use by individuals and groups. This aspect is more marked in populations that have historically been in conditions of inequality (indigenous communities, rural environments, segregated neighborhoods, ethnic minorities, among others). Mediations are another aspect, they can range from people who serve as a link between other people and technologies, going through the proposals and orientations of civil organizations, to symbolic figures such as hackers that expand the possibilities of the uses and appropriations of the Information and Communication Technologies. In conjunction with other aspects, such as local population dynamics, the emergence and maintenance of community media or wireless networks can be encouraged or inhibited. In the cases that are included in this issue, these are examples in which it can be observed that people use the available resources to use digital technologies, the Internet connection and the media to generate meaningful content.
