Brief: Proposal for an American Hacklab Infolab
Jump To: Parent Description

  • Problem: Corporate Media, owned by just a few companies, has a monopoly on the ideas that are force fed to "consumers". Likewise, corporations to a large extent control the computer operating systems. The internet, however, has seen the production of many documentaries, documentation, and operating systems which offer different and important viewpoints. Many of these documentaries and operating systems are licensed with free redistribution, and can be distributed via DVD. The goal of the American Hacklab infolab project is to create, in the tradition of European hacklabs (but without the physical space requirements), Infolabs that can help with the distribution of materials.
