Do it with others
The world is evolving towards a concept of individuals being empowered, which enables them to put their passions, talents and energy to good use. In shared spaces, hacker spaces and media labs, groups of individuals contribute in the form of collective projects and software or content creation workshops. Community members also try to lend meaning to their actions. Civic techs are designed to give power back to citizens. The “doing” is at the heart of the culture of hackers, free software and fab labs that aim to embody an ethic, a way of life and a tactic of social and political combat and demands. Never has the quest for meaning been so strong, and never has the mercenary culture been so widespread.
