The HM2009 is happening at Madrid, from the 9th to the 12th of October, in the CSOA Patio Maravillas, C/Acuerdo 8 (how to come).


The hackmeeting is a free self-governed event dealing with new technologies, its social implications, the free circulation of knowlegde and techniques, privacy, collective creation, the telecom conflict... It's aimed at everyone with an open, curious mind willing to share their experiences and enjoy the event as part of the organization. Some of the talks and workshops require advanced technical knowledge, other don't, others do not require computer experience at all.

To know the event better you might read the Manifest and the frequently asked questions, watch this video of Hackinvisible 2008 and check the websites of previous hackmeetings 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003 2002, 2001, 2000).

Dark Wave

Google has released a new technology that can put down the social servers like Twitter, Facebook, etc. and can integrate gobby-style tools for coordination of communities with email and mailing lists. Unfortunately we would be even more dependent on Google, on its powerufl control of all the fluxes of information, on its painful data-mining tools drilling into our social nature. The world would be a sunny, happy place for the Goliath of the network... were not because in this hackmeeting we have a slingshot of our own: Dark Wave. Join the tsunami.
