International open day for hackerspaces, 30 March 2013

Enschede – On the 30th of March 2013, hackerspaces everywhere will open
their doors for everyone who wants to know what real hackers are and
what they do. There are more than 500 hackerspaces worldwide, with more
being founded every year.

Make a fork into an iPhone-holder, change a simple toy into an advanced
musical instrument, turn on a coffee machine with you mobile or create a
radio from your Wifi router. Sound familiar? Then you are a hacker:
hacking is commonplace, and with the right mindset anyone can be a
hacker. This will be demonstrated in hackerspaces during the open day.
Last year more then 300 people visited the first open hackerspaces day
in the Netherlands, and now this event will go international.

On the 30th of March, hackerspaces will show that hacker communities
have a wide spectrum of interests as well as a rich history. Pioneered
in the mid-90s by c-Base (Berlin), Metalab (Vienna) and others, there
are now more than 500 hackerspaces worldwide, open locations where
everyone is welcome to programme, solder, make and discuss. Most spaces
also hold all sorts of workshops and lectures.

Terms such as 'Ethical hacking' and free knowledge will be explained.
Sharing knowledge, whether technical or ethical, are often seen as one
of the core values of a hackerspace. “Many projects built in a
hackerspace are documented on the internet so that others can re-use or
improve them.” says Dave Borghuis, initiator of the Dutch hackerspaces
open day and founder of dutch hackerspace TkkrLab.nl. “A simple question
about how something works or to create something often results in a
cooperation and sharing knowledge. This is all very accessible and is
much broader than only working with computers”

Hackers like to create things; many old appliances find their way to a
hackerspace. An electric motor of an old mixer can be use for a remote
controlled car. If something doesn't exist they create it themselves,
with a 3D printer, laser cutter or electronics and software - all based
on open and free available knowledge that is actively shared and spread
around the world.

The open day is motely and full of variety, with all kind of activities
throughout the world. Every hackerspace has its own program, just a few
highlights of the possible subjects: create products with a 3D printer
or lasercutter, workshops about soldering and electronics for beginners,
lockpicking, how to safely browse the internet and much more. See the
list of activities in a hackerspace near to you [insert url]

Everyone is welcome to take a look. Most spaces are open from 10:00 till
17:00 local time, but check the program of the hackerspace you want to

There is no need to RSVP, members of the press please indicate that you
