monochrom is organizing a community site for the evergrowing armada of hackbusses.
We need a root movement of doing strange things
with hardware which was not intended (aka
“hacking”) because only when we use things in
ways other than they were planned can something
Hackbusses (or mobile hacklabs or
hack vehicles) are a low-threshold way of
bringing the culture of hacking to the people.
They are migratory learning and teaching units,
taking the talented hackers and their ideas out
of urban centers and bringing them to people who
might not otherwise be aware of the possibilities
available to them.
We follow a long tradition of this nomadic approach to bring
self-empowerment to the people. These units can be everywhere. And they
should be everywhere. Start one yourself!
