David Nunez, Austin’s own tech evangelist speaks the truth about the freedom to tinker and to do potentially risky experiments with technology, all in the name of learning and building wonderful things to the at Austin Telecom Commision about Austin’s very own Dorkbot Scene.
And I quote:
“We believe in the freedom to tinker – to tear apart our technology, our clothes, our food, our stuff and use those raw materials to build something new and better…We insist that young students should be encouraged to do undocumented, dangerous, and weird things with their toys, tools, and electricity because they will surprise us with what they choose to invent.”
Watch it here:
Can I get an “Amen”?
At dorkbot austin (next meeting October 12th, 2006) you sure can.
