Why we need Open, Hackable Materials now – An Interview with Catarina Mota ( our founder :P )

 

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.
