The name "situated laboratories" originated from the writings of Science and Technology scholars Bruno Latour, John Law, and Donna Haraway. For many years it probably smacked of obscure, elitist intellectualism (which it may have been).
Given my recent training in spatial science – situated? – and desire for a playful, experimental engagement with the web – laboratory? – perhaps it's coming to make sense.
