Hello noisebridge- was great to meet you all and see some familiar faces.
I am interested in multiple SF hacker spaces- the ones that exist now, and many noisebridge ones!
Looking forward to sharing resources and colliding realities.
Fun stuff I like to think about with YOU!
- Coding, software, activism, politics
- Anarchist consensus process
- Love, respect, trust
- Radio, TV transmitters
- Video games, industrial art!!
- Zines, Music, Creativity!
- Food Hacking (http://www.foodhacking.com), Food Justice
- Hacking Politics, hacking political parties
- Travel, hacker coalitions, expanding our boundaries (by hacking them!)
I also enjoy being active with San Francisco Bay Area Indymedia- and so should you! Read it daily!
Here's a talk I did at What The Hack (2005) called Galactic Hacker Partei, there's video of it! might be entertaining??
Another talk from H2K2 (2002) called "Black Hat Bloc: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying About Corporations and Love the Hacker Class War" about white hat hackers, the security industrial complex, and corporate co-optation.
I have been involved with a bunch of hacker collectives and spaces, and feel like I am still learning a lot!
I have been involved with dorkbot for years, and the first one was in the basement of Unicorn Precinct XIII, where I live!
I was a huge fan of the west coast HACK MEET this year that took place in San Francisco! Lots of cool hackers getting together to socialize, share ideas and tech:
Goals for a hacker space:
- Food integration!
- Yearly San Francisco hacker conference/skillshare/meetup outside of the corporate structures
- Work space for projects, socialization
- Fund raising and sustainability!!!
- Reclaiming public space for public use- events, skillshares!
- Hacker Community and Outreach (2600, high schools, community centers, free skools, hacker embassy programs)
- To Each According to Their Need, From Each According To Their Ability (some people can fuel hacker spaces with funds, some with projects)
- Project Demos!!
Crabgrass, from riseup.net, it's like myspace/friendster for anarchists, you can run it on your own server, it's in rails, it's free! Get it!
