What is Middlebroware?

“Tackling the politics of configuration for the production of culture with media software requires a conceptual framework that draws attention to the distinct ways in which people redeploy modes of ordering subjects and objects through the design and use of media software and how such positions constitute a symbolic order for cultural production. I propose ‘middlebroware’, a portemanteau that combines ‘middleware’ and ‘middlebrow’, as one potential framework for such a study.” – See more at: http://twentyfive.fibreculturejournal.org/fcj-182-middlebroware/#sthash.mF2kNDvL.dpuf
