The hackerspace revolution

INK Fellow Bilal Ghalib travels the world building ‘hackerspaces’ – collaborative community labs where people share their tools and ideas to experiment, innovate, problem-solve, and actualize their imaginations. Bilal takes us on a tour of the hackerspace movement sprouting up in attics and basements across the Middle East, showing us that the future of innovation is decentralized, open source, and collective.

Recorded at INK2012, Pune, India
