Today there are really interesting sessions at transmediale: Re-hacking your World. Intro:
Re-hacking your World examines issues of crisis and possibility by intervening in the relationships between environment, industry and culture. Has our cultural hardware and software become useless and unserviceable faced with the complex challenges that confront us? In order to prevent a complete takeover of commercial interests in the development of digital cultures in Africa, Asia and Latin America, it becomes essential to promote and strengthen the vocabulary of open source systems and develop fair use mechanisms.
The track has three sessions: Sensible Software, Fair Trade Hardware, I Saw Disaster
