This project started with an interest in Internet fragmentation and its effects in African cities. The reason why we were drawn to the African city was that in recent scholarship it has been explored as a unique space characterised by informal social relationships and institutions, and laden with contradiction and chaos (Gandy, 2006). The African city is seen to escape formal governance and instead exhibit new hybrid socio‐material realities; the slum is often cited as a prime example of this hybridity (Gandy, 2006).
