Opening Remarks

An example the speaker gave of an alpha geek was an amateur astronomer ;-)

The hacking is "remixing" ... you chop something apart, examine the component bits, and use skill, creativity and ingenuity to make something new from those bits.

Remix your web:
  • View source
  • Firefox and Thunderbird
  • JavaScript

Remix your music:
  • Rip -- we love your music so much and hate the format so much, we will resort to illegal methods to put things the way we need them to be

Remix your TV:
  • TiVO obviously

Remix your network:
  • WiFi
  • War driving
  • Hotspots
  • Airport Express

Remix your movies:
  • BitTorrent
  • NetFlix
  • Blockbuster runs scared

Remix your data:
  • scraping --: XML
  • hacks --> standards
  • syndication
  • web services

Remix your text:
  • Blogging

Remix your syndication:
  • RSS allowed Netscape to compete with Yahoo
  • RSS reinvented syndication
  • RSS flows into Yahoo
  • everyone monetizes RSS

Remix your bookshelf
  • Project Gutenberg
  • Search Inside the Book
  • Google Print

Remix IT
  • all kinds of IT specialties
  • "be liberal in what you accept"
  • Hacks become frameworks become foundation

Remix the browser:
  • Firefox

Remix brick-and-mortar (and remix again):
  • Order online, pick up in the store
  • shop and research online, buy in the store

Remix space:
  • Spaceship One

The unreasonable man adapts the world to himself -- George Bernard Shaw
