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. Queen’s 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.

Guests
Eric Freedman
- —Dean of the Knight School of Communication, Queen’s University of Charlotte
Brian Cox - Director of business support and services agency at Mecklenburg County
Redvers Davies - —Founder, Hackerspace Charlotte
