"Ordinary people" can be producers of technology and science. Latino "street mechanics" created the Low Rider car and Black teenagers created the "scratch" sound of rap. Appropriated technology can help the disenfranchised gain social power. We can encourage marginalized groups to strive towards positive "hybridity," create community technology centers, and train engineers and designers to think about appropriation by users as a positive goal.
