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.
