Welcome to #hack66

From Liebl, F., Düllo, T., Kiel, M. (2005) Cultural Hacking: Art of Strategic Action: 
A "hack" was originally an expression for journalistic work with unorthodox means. It 
then transferred very quickly to the field of data processing, because programmers were 
always challenged to make detours and develop creative solutions... 
David J. Gunkel (2001, 6) writes: "[...] hacking is a form of exploring and manipulating 
that not only learns how a specific system behaves but discovers how to use its tools and 
procedures against and in excess of the necessary limitations of its own programming.

01/2019 We are currently running Phygital.
Τhis is the culmination of our 5+ year dreams of having our own space and equipment dedicated to software and hardware freedom. hack66 co-wrote the local part of Phygital with guys from P2PLabs (stepping on their previous research on nu production models) and OpenLabs and then built up the project in collaboration with the University of Nicosia Research Foundation, ELLAK.gr, Municipality of North Tzoumerka, and the Albanian Folklore Institute. Phygital is funded by Interreg, BalkanMED, EU. It's the biggest thing we've ever done!

What is this?

hack66.info is a local arm of the international maker- and hacker-space community, representing an inclusive network of people coming together over the shared ideals of open technology and technological freedom. Between 2013 and 2017 the community was kindly given physical premises by the ARTos Cultural and Research Foundation, and as of 2018, is hosted by the Lakatamia Municipality.

#hack66 aims to be the physical space that empowers local communities to gather, experiment, share and create.
Its main goal is to promote the mindset of openness and sustainable innovation in Cyprus.

Το #hack66 είναι ένα hackerspace στη Λευκωσία.

To hack66 είναι η τοπική προέκταση της διεθνούς κοινότητας των maker- και hacker-spaces, που αντιπροσωπεύει ένα συνεκτικό-ενταξιακό δίκτυο ανθρώπων που συναντώνται στα κοινά ιδεώδη της ανοιχτής-ελεύθερης τεχνολογίας, και της τεχνολογικής ελευθερίας. Από το 2013 εώς το 2017 το hack66 φιλοξενήθηκε από το Πολιτιστικό και Ερευνητικό Ίδρυμα ΑΡΤος, και από το 2018 φιλοξενείται από τον Δήμο Λακατάμιας.

Στόχος του είναι να λειτουργήσει ως φυσικός χώρος όπου άτομα και κοινότητες μπορούν να συγκεντρωθούν, να πειραματιστούν, να μοιραστούν ιδέες και προβλήματα, εν τέλει να δημιουργήσουν, προωθώντας τη νοοτροπία της βιώσιμης καινοτομίας και της ελεύθερης ανοικτής παραγωγής.
