We have decided to organise a 3 days Hacktivist Camp ( From July 28th to 30th tentatively ) involving various students from different colleges across the state, and other professionals. The main aim of this camp will be to mobilise thought, create awareness of tools for making a positive impact on the world using digital medium and spread knowledge for benefit of all humanity. Along with this, we aim to spread the philosophy of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) and its key role in bringing positive change to the world. Unlikely the past camps and workshops, this camp will be focused on non technical content. Camps organised during the past years, over 7-9 days of residential in nature, for an average of 150 college students were focused on technical content. This camp is intended to core and active members of FSMK to reinstate the philosophical and political understanding of free software, open knowledge , commons in general and lot more. As always camps will be filled with loads of learning and fun
Updates so far : We have contacted Academy of Sanskrit Research, Melukote for hosting the camp and they responded very positively. However we have not got any final confirmation. We shall follow up with the academy in coming days.
