A Hacker’s Utopia

Sandro Gaycken

The lecture will explore hacker ideology as a utopian idea. Drawing on utopian theory and technology assessment, it will investigate within which terms hacking can be acknowledge as a utopia, what might be missing for a full-blown societal vision and - most importantly - how technology could actually help to realize utopian ideas (and how not).
