As per the nature of the collective, multidimensional and at times messy practice of making WiFi, there is no single neat or narrow conclusion. This final chapter begins by returning to the field to contemplate the changes in Air-Stream practice and discussing the reasons for and results of socio-technical change. I draw attention to key themes emerging throughout the book relating to connectivity, visual culture and Do-it-Yourself (DiY) practice. Then, looking to the future, I conclude by speculating on the potential wider application of a Do-it-Together (DiT) approach in materializing other seemingly complex and complicated innovation processes and systems, and asking what other extraordinary things can ordinary people make in their own backyards.
