From Indian H-1B Workers and Detroit techno music to karaoke and the Chicano interneta, TechniColor's specific case studies document the ways in which people of color actually use technology. The results rupture such racial stereotypes as Asian whiz-kids and Black and Latino technophobes, while fundamentally challenging many widely-held theoretical and political assumptions.
Incorporating a broader definition of technology and technological practices -- to include not those technologies thought to create "revolutions" (computer hardware and software) but also cars, cellular phones, and other everyday technologies -- TechniColor reflects the larger history of technology use by people of color.
