The first one is the history and «prehistory» of the Internet. We plan to speak about cybernetics and Fidonet, about ideas and social relationships that created the infrastructure and design. Prehistory means inquiring what were those ideas, persons, events that determined what we now know as the Internet today. These themes were broadly discussed in major works dedicated to the history of the Internet itself (Abbate, Flichy, Mansell, Kleinrock) and in those focused specifically on the Runet (Gerovich, Abramov, Kusnetsov, Gorny, Peters). However, despite a large body of scholarship dedicated to the Internet, little is known about local cultures, narratives and practices of the Internet as they develop in particular regions or cities in Russia and worldwide. Dealing only with this broad history of the Internet is not sufficient, so we need to take into account all the diversity.
