95 Theses of Geek Activism

This is all over the web today – I saw it on Boing Boing this morning and Metafilter tonight (which was cited as being found on Digg.)

Here’s the Top 5:

1.
Reclaim the term ‘hacker’. If you tinker with electronics, you are a
hacker. If you use things in more ways than intended by the
manufacturer, you are a hacker. If you build things out of strange,
unexpected parts, you are a hacker. Reclaim the term.
2. Violating a license agreement is not theft.
3. All corporations are not on your side.
4. Keep in touch with everyone you can vote for and make sure you know where they stand on the issues you care about.
5. More importantly, make sure they know where you stand on the issues you care about.
