What are hackers?
tinkerers whose association is driven by digital networks, proponents of ‘cryptofreedom’
digital criminals, transgression as a form of political critique
distributed invention vs. vernacular invention
“Hackers, a priori invested in exploring the possibilities of digital media, may be especially predisposed to experiment with the blurring of technological practices and political speech” (Karanovic 2013)
“An informational society that is cheap, efficient and clean ignores the hidden costs elsewhere” (Barendregt 2013).
