Why we need Open, Hac­ka­ble Mate­ri­als now – An Inter­view with Cata­rina Mota @ Mee­dabyte.

Catarina Mota

I had the oppor­tu­nity to get in touch with  Cata­rina Mota recen­tly, while I was hel­ping my fri­ends at openp­Pi­cus, to con­nect with the Open Source Hard­ware Asso­ci­a­tion. She is, no doubt, amongst the most emi­nent repre­sen­ta­ti­ves of the Hac­king­mo­ve­ment. To me, it’s extre­mely impres­sive though how one of the lea­ders of this revo­lu­tion is coming right from out­side the tech­no­lo­gi­cal world and actu­ally has a com­mu­ni­ca­tion sci­en­ces and film col­lege back­ground. When I asked her to tell me a brief recap of her expe­ri­ence of hac­king, she gave a really insight­ful and detai­led story.
