Scheduling and organizing Chicago hackmeetings is a public activity, open to anyone to contribute at public meetings or on the website: http://hackmeeting.dai5ychain.net/
This third Chicago hackmeeting is loosely themed around education as a component of radical social practice and educational institutions as sites of resistance. Talks/workshops/discussions already being planned include:
+ Inside the One Laptop Per Child project (laptop.org) and how electronic constructivist educational theories are being put into practice.
+ Counter-recruitment in chicago schools.
+ Workshops on circuit-bending, net graffiti and electronic civil disobedience.
+ Open hack sessions : live coding collaborative software projects.
+ Live performances and screenings Saturday night and an Artware Deathmatch Sunday night.
