“Inside the Internet Garage” is a project of Steinhardt’s Initiative for Internet and Network Culture (INC@NYU). Housed in Steinhardt’s Department of Media, Culture, and Communication, it aims to generate new knowledge about the ways in which the Internet and networked media are reshaping social life, culture, and commerce. Through industry-university partnerships, it serves as a nexus for scholars, entrepreneurs, and media analysts interested in the technologies, business practices, and social processes that have given rise to the Internet and its range of network culture.
