* What: Annual Hacktivist Meeting
* When and Where: 12-14 October, in Ca la Fou, Vallbona d'Anoia,
* 41.51073, 1.70284
* Deadline for proposals: 10 October 2012
Once more, this year, we are going to join our energies and gather
around what motivates us the most: hacktivism, cyberspace,
free-software culture and free hardware... It is a self-organised and
self-managed weekend turning around technopolitical experiences and
The Hackmeeting consists of autonomous yet inter-connected Nodes
(workshops, talks, round tables, experiments, meetings, etc). Everyone
can bring his/her node to the hackmeeting.
There is no preconceived idea of what this hackmeeting will be. Hacking
and hacktivism in a wide (and wild!) sense: machine and protocol
hacking but also hacking of social codes and ways of envisioning, using
and understanding the technology... Participate and share your hacks
(whether IT or not), open your mind, spread your viral ideas.
Copyfight, distributed networks, free hardware, new inventions, music,
debates, workshops... come and speak up loud, make your node happen!
Here you can find some of the topics treated during previous editions
of the hackmeeting as well as some of the topics we would like to
approach this year. But remember - even the sky isn't a limit! We
always seek new points of view, constantly looking forward discovering
whatever you would like to bring and share: your inventions,
discussion panels you would like to coordinate and techniques you would
like to elucidate.

The first hackmeeting took place in Florence in 1998 and since then it
keeps happening in Italy every year (http://hackmeeting.org). Our
Spanish hackmeeting for the first time happened in Barcelona in 2000
and ever since we keep meeting every year.
