For some years there have been a number of meetings of hackers,
hacktivist and media activist which have all followed the principle
of self-organising a space where people with a hacker ethic, applied
to whatever area you can think of - from technology to politics to
reality itself - could meet, share and think together about new ways
of transforming the world around them.
These meetings have been held in different locations at a national,
regional, local and neighbourhood level, uniting very different people
who have been brought together by their passion for technology,
communication, social change, and connecting people, things and
paradigms. The meetings have met with lots of enthusiasm and the feeling
that a diverse community centred around these themes is possible.
This year it seems that a meeting bringing together people from all
over Europe (geographically speaking), the Mediterranean, Near and
Middle East really is possible and this is a call for making it happen.
This meeting won't be organized by anyone else other than you: bring
your workshop, your debate, the things you've studied this year, the
things you want to talk about, the reasons and projects why you'd like
to meet other hackers - and you don't need to be a geek to be a hacker!
The Monteparadiso squat in Pula, Croatia, has already agreed to host
the transnational hackmeeting, otherwise known as the transhackmeeting
or thk, which has been in the pipeline for two years. The meeting will
take place at the end of June.
