This year the Italian hacker meeting, hack-it 2002 was held in Bologna.
The speeches covered various topics from micro controllers, over digital music, e-privacy to womenkind&computers.
One highlight was a speech of Richard Stallman about
Copyright vs Community in the
Age of Computer Networks. A transcript or an
of the speech are available in the web.
The meeting took place in the teatro polivalente occupato (occupied theatre, a former
porn cinema), which did certainly not reduce the flair of the event.
The motto of the meeting was:
A hacker is someone who wants to govern himself and his own life, and who knows how to fight for this.
Even if he hasn't seen a computer in his whole life.
