Combined Format Open Panel

Short Abstract:

Like the past editions of Hacker Cultures at EASST/4S 2020 and EASST 2022, this conference session will be recorded live, and then published as a podcast. Instead of a classic powerpoint presentation, your convenors will lead a discussion with our speakers in the format of a dialectic podcast.

Long Abstract:

Welcome to Hacker Cultures! This podcast panel invites all researchers who study what it is to be a hacker or programmer working in both orthodox or unorthodox ways with computers, software, or digital platforms. In line with the conference theme around "Making and Doing Transformations," we are interested in various themes: beyond hacking for the intellectual game-of-it, danger, seeking and exploiting opportunities, having fun or being an asshole - we also invite a more broad range of ways that hacking is used to tackle political issues, mitigate the climate crisis, help food security, or address issues of inqeuality. We also invite those working on how hacking or programming at large is transforming as a profession. Hacking here is expanded into what "the hack" means and what hacking does - both through and outside of straightforward technosolutionist ideals.

Like the past editions of Hacker Cultures at EASST/4S 2020 and EASST 2022, this conference session will be recorded live, and then published as a podcast. Instead of a classic powerpoint presentation, we - Paula Bialski, Mace Ojala and Andreas Bischof - will be leading a discussion with our speakers in the format of a dialectic podcast.
