0008 Studying Backyard Technologists Background to the research Tim: The initial driving force apart from the general playing with computers and stuff was the fact that Adelaide in particular was behind the eight ball with regards to broadband technology. ADSL had only just been introduced. Cable internet, we slowly found out, was never really going to be rolled out in Adelaide.
