Possible Worlds in Impossible Spaces is a pioneering work that shows how we can think about information technology (IT). The starting point of this exploration is the claim that Filipinos are "the best IT professionals in the world." What underlies such a claim? By looking at Filipino intermediate developers who create IT products needed by everyday users using frameworks and infrastructure created elsewhere, this book illuminates two relatively new worlds in Philippine society: One refers to technological spheres where women participate in; the other hosts global-local technological encounters. These worlds challenge notions from the new international division of labor that looks at the Philippines as a site of assembly and its women as assembly-line workers. The existence of "possible worlds" in an "impossible space," or heterotopia, likewise gains a special meaning when creativity and ingenuity in the Philippine IT prosper despite the lack of state-regulated policy and implementation mechanisms
