A couple of weeks ago I put together a workshop based off some readings focusing on hacker culture. I presented this workshop to the studio and we tried to hack into personal devices to gain access to documents and above all free WIFI! Before we dove into the hacking exercises, we had the opportunity to talk about some ideas that make up what we consider hacker culture. We considered the historical influences that led to the necessity of hacking as well as the question of ethics that so often arises. We spent much of the time talking about an array of topics all connecting to one another across multiple themes. The image below outlines major themes and sub-themes that seem to comprise the topics of hacking and hacker culture.
