DEFCON Kids is a not-for-profit dedicated to teaching kids around the world how to love being white-hat hacker. A white-hat hacker is someone who enjoys thinking of innovative new ways to make, break and use anything to create a better world.
DIYbio.org is an organization dedicated to making biology an accessible pursuit for citizen scientists, amateur biologists and biological engineers who value openness and safety. This will require mechanisms for amateurs to increase their knowledge and skills, access to a community of experts, the development of a code of ethics, responsible oversight, and leadership on issues that are unique to doing biology outside of traditional professional settings. - Knowtex
Creativity is the truly unique feature of Homo Sapiens. It’s not intelligence (even a thermostat can be said to be intelligent) and it is not consciousness (probably most primates and maybe mammals have some kind of consciousness), two “things” which incidentally are also very difficult to define and to study: it is creativity that makes the difference, and creativity is easier to measure and study. What makes us so much more creative is an innate impulse to be different from previous generations. Humans are the only species whose children “rebel” against the lifestyle of the parents. In all other species the children live the exact same life of their parents. Humans are the only ones whose lifestyle changes in almost every generation.
La Bastille en question, c’est celle qui domine Grenoble, capitale des terres du Dauphin, berceau de la recherche atomique Française, patrie de Champollion (crypto analyste avant l’heure) et très prochainement, à partir du 19 octobre, berceau du hacking alpin avec GreHack, un cycle de conférences traitant de sécurité Informatique accompagné de son inévitable CTF. C’est donc, après les Sstic de Rennes, Hackito Ergo Sum à Paris, Hack in Paris à Eurodisney, la quatrième conférence sécurité institutionnelle de France, et la première qui se déroule dans le quart sud-est du pays. Evènement tardif d’autant plus surprenant qu’entre Grenoble, Lyon, Sophia, Marseille, ce ne sont pas les centres de recherche qui manquent (à commencer par l’InriAlpes) et qui ont des choses à dire.
Même si le cinéma et la littérature en donne une image romantique, les pirates sont toujours des criminels. Or en informatique, le terme anglais de « hacker » est souvent traduit par pirate informatique.
A poet with a hankering to learn code recently teamed up with a Web developer who was curious about poetry as part of a new kind of teaching experience.
The lessons took place at Peer 2 Peer University, a three-year-old online institution where students learn together, at no charge, using materials found on the Web. The poet, Vanessa Gennarelli, and the programmer, John Britton, taught each other online, discovering unexpected bridges between their disciplines.
Early on the morning of November 30, 2010, WikiLeaks.org came under assault by a hacker known as “th3j35t3r” (The Jester).1 By launch- ing what is known as a denial of service (DoS) attack with software of his own invention, The Jester overwhelmed WikiLeaks' servers with ...
The development of computer software and hardware in closed-source, corporate environments limits the extent to which technologies can be used to empower the marginalized and oppressed. Various forms of resistance and counter-mobilization may appear, but these reactive efforts are often constrained by limitations that are embedded in the technologies by those in power. In the world of open source software development, actors have one more degree of freedom in the proactive shaping and modification of technologies, both in terms of design and use. Drawing on the work of philosopher of technology Andrew Feenberg, I argue that the open source model can act as a forceful lever for positive change in the discipline of software development. A glance at the somewhat vacuous hacker ethos, however, demonstrates that the technical community generally lacks a cohesive set of positive values necessary for challenging dominant interests. Instead, Feenberg’s commitment to "deep democratization" is offered as a guiding principle for incorporating more preferable values and goals into software development processes.

Hackfest Communication est fier d’annoncer la mise sur pied d’un nouvel événement de sécurité, qui s’adresse aux adolescents, leurs parents et professeurs. Les adolescents sont par nature très curieux et « essayeux ».
Most articles on garage biology and do-it-yourself (DIY) biology highlight its somewhat immaterial cultures or ideologies. The issues usually raised include: the ways in which do-it-yourself biology potentially democratizes science and fosters a citizen science, that its practitioners are a "creative proof of the hacker principle", that the field is an illustration of the open source movement, that concerns about control, security and safety need to be addressed. However, rather than focusing on such relatively abstract cultures, this article focuses on the more material aspects of do-it-yourself biology: its locations, its equipments, its objects. The article presents three sites of DIY practices: a community laboratory in Paris, a private laboratory in Boston and, third, cheap alternatives to scientific equipment, such as the DremelFuge. The argument I am concerned with is that the circulability, the affordability and the mutability of objects play a key role in do-it-yourself biology and, at the same time, that we witness the emergence of a "citizen biotech-economy".
