The Spaces of Hacking Symposium

Sun, 2013-10-13 (All day)
Notman House : 51 Sherbrooke Street West , H2X 1X2

Despite this presence, they are everywhere misunderstood. Spaces of hacking, the first of three events seeking to demystify the hacker, will contextualize the acts of hacking in light of the spaces and places where it unfolds: the hacker space, the free software project, the biolab, the media, the law, and the server.
