We ran this as a series of position statements on key terms that interest us in the study of civic hacking. This is the result of ongoing research across a number of different sites that are discussed in detail in the session.
The words and speakers are as follows:
Hackers and/as entrepreneurs
Lilly Irani, Andrew Schrock
Andrew Schrock, Max Liboiron, Thomas Lodato
Thomas Lodato, Max Liboiron
Max Liboiron, Andrew Schrock
Thomas Lodato, Mel Gregg
The final part of the discussion, not part of this recording, was a brainstorm with the audience in which we attempted to move the conversation from terms to tactics. It also featured some ideas from my forthcoming paper, “Hack for Good: Speculative labor, app development and the burden of austerity.”
We will be using this material as the basis for further thinking, writing and events, so feedback is most welcome.
