SILVA DE LIMA, Alberto Jorge  and  CUKIERMAN, Henrique Luiz. Da integração das Américas a um cemitério de pipas: a construção de um projeto de inclusão digital na Favela da Maré. Rev. iberoam. cienc. tecnol. soc. [online]. 2011, vol.6, n.18, pp.183-197. ISSN 1850-0013.

This paper aims to build the history of a project that connected computer centers located in Maré, a 'favela' (slum) in Rio de Janeiro, to Rede Rio, the computer network formed by the leading research institutions of the state of Rio de Janeiro. That connection was established through wireless links, in a move that set up a network of actors as the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, the Canadian government agency Institute for Connectivity in the Americas (ICA), a couple of non-governmental organizations (NGOs), routers, antennas, the Maré's inhabitants, among others. Referenced on Actor-Network Theory, the goal is to map the translations that made the project a stable entity, as well as changes in these translations which destabilized it some years later.

Keywords : Favela da Maré; Rede Rio; Actor-Network Theory; Digital inclusion.
