This last week of class has taught me many things about hacking in general. From Monday’s discussion and readings, I thought about hacking in a different light. When first asked if I believed that hacking meant changing anything, such as adjusting the light of an oven or using recycled goods to make a bracelet, my thoughts turned into an automatic “no, of course not.” However, after hearing other people’s perspectives by the end of class, I had changed my mind. Hacking is open to interpretation and can be defined in numerous ways. I do believe that hacking can be changing or adjusting anything to work for a purpose that it is not intended to work for. This discussion has caused me to be more open-minded when it comes to the definition of hacking. I also enjoyed today’s class. It was very interesting to see the use of social media when it comes to learning about current topics. I have never used my twitter for education purposes or to look up information about current events. In less than an hour, I learned so much about #TransH4ck just from reading different people’s tweets. The amount of work that the participants of TransH4ck got done in just a few sleepless days is incredible! I’m going to continue to use social media, especially Twitter, to become more knowledgable of the news going on around me!
