Modding is in

Playlist: iPod shuffle mods a hit online

“I think people have rediscovered the joy of making things with your own hands,” Make editor Mark Frauenfelder tells Playlist. “There’s a great deal of pleasure to be had in modifying your technology, because it then becomes part of you on some level. People knew this well in earlier times, but it was forgotten when manufacturing methods improved to the point that it became a lot cheaper to buy new stuff than it was to fix or customize broken or older stuff. shuffle hackers are definitely part of this re-found joy of hacking the world around them to suit them.”

Electronics, technology, and the DIY attitude. Can be seen in many social domains.
