Mitch Altman, CEO of Cornfield Electronics and co-founder of San Francisco’s Noisebridge, speaks on the International Hackerspace Movement. Dubbed “the Johnny Appleseed of Hackerspaces” by Make Magazine, he’s spent the past decade traveling around the world giving talks, teaching workshops, and helping hackerspaces and their communities. About this work he says: “It’s fun. It’s important. It’s inspiring.”
In this talk Mitch tells the story of his hacking-powered life journey- As a bullied creative youth, to inventor, to entrepreneur and globe-trotting educator. He explains the term “Hacking,” and it’s original definition vs. the negative connotations sometimes applied, and, most importantly, illustrates how hackerspaces fill a vital need for community and support entrepreneurs to make a better world.
