"Have you ever wondered what color the internet is? Learn how to build a simple web extension for searching the internet to quickly create your own visualizations."

The Internet is an active space filled with billions of pages, images,videos, and other files. Those that are not web producers or makers find themselves being passive participants in the game. But social media, browser hacks, and the very Internet itself yields many opportunities to engage, interact, and disrupt.

Workshop

Greg Leuch and Jiashan Wu will present and discuss how to interact and engage with the Internet through various tools and techniques, including browser hacks, social media, and APIs. The workshop will provide participants new inspirations on how to actively think and create using the Internet as a primary medium for their projects.
