Digital Charlotte And Hacker Culture
The word 'Hacker' brings to mind a nefarious computer nerd stealing credit card information or disrupting websites. But a hacker has traditionally been someone who was into technological 'tinkering' and innovation. Queens University of Charlotte is promoting hacker culture by teaching digital and media literacy with a hackathon. We'll also meet the founder of a digital meet-up site called Charlotte Hackerspace. It's a place where geeks can feel free to tinker and in some cases, evolve technology. Join us as we plug into the rise of Hacker Culture.
