Hackmeeting is a meeting of Italian digital communities and countercultures. Three days of
workshops, games, parties, debates, exchanges of viewpoints and ideas and common learning.
Hacking as an attitude: this is our vision, not just computer knowledge.
We are "hackers" all day long, even when we aren't using a computer, when we fight to
change what we don't like, such as the untrue and forced information, the exploitation of
not affordable but expensive technologies, as the unavoidableness of acknowledging
information without any interaction.
We regard hacking to be an attitude that isn't confined to information technology. Our way
of being hackers is apparent in day-to-day life, even when we're not using computers. It
reveals itself when we fight to change the things we don't like, such as force-fed
misinformation, the use of expensive technologies that are not available to everyone, and
having to accept information dispensed without any interactivity.
This is the fifth edition of the Italian hackmeeting. Like the previous ones, this year
the event will take place in an autonomously run location, Teatro Polivalente Occupato
(TPO http://www.ecn.org/tpo/) in Bologna. And like we did in the past, this edition is
totally self-managed and self-financed. We have no sponsors and no labels.
Organization is managed by a virtual group which sets up both tech aspects and logistics
on the hackmeeting en kyuzz.org mailing list.
The focal point of the meeting is the "networked space", an area in which everyone can
bring his own computer and wire it to the net to communicate with everyone else,
experimenting, playing and sharing freely everyone's stuff. It isn't a public net, in fact
it will not be accessible from the Internet and it will not allow access to the Internet.
We encourage internal sharing of knowledge. And we encourage the use of free and
not-for-commercial-use technologies and software, i.e. Linux OS and other programs
developed by this way of thinking.
Hackmeeting also provides workshops and debates, freely open to the public, in which we'll
talk about technology but also about politics. We'll develop the debate about digital
rights that the Italian digital underground has been discussing for a long time; we'll
talk about free software and related ways of thinking, we'll talk about Net economies, Net
work and more over.
