3D Print Hacking Mastermind with Anil Pattni of TinyHackerHouse
4 days ago
We are going to talk about hacking and making today. It’s hacking in a general sense. It’s a definition. Broadly used hacking is the way we’re talking about it today; involved in everything from real hackers in makerspaces to even also incubator-level hacking with software and life hacking. Anil Pattni who I got to meet at the FREECon, the Freelance Conference in Austin, Texas which we went to. It was so interesting to meet him. It was ironic because he started doing some of the first OC Maker Faire stuff here in Orange County, California and yet we met him in Austin, Texas which is where he is now. It was like, “How did we not meet you before?” that kind of thing.
He’s been running a lot of Meetups. He did 200 Meetups. They were one of the first hacker Maker Faire things that happened on MeetUp.com. Those really all happened in Southern California. They happened all in Orange County here. I thought it was so interesting this idea because we have a friend, Mickey Ackerman, who was one of Tom’s professors and Department Head at that time at Rhode Island School Design. He does something similar but not on this grassroots low level. They do it at a very top level where they do and they get people from diverse walks of life and areas to try to hack a solution to a big societal problem. You want to brainstorm at a large level and that’s the kind of word we’re using hacking for here. That’s the term that we’re using it for. It’s the same thing but at a much smaller level like being able to do it local and freelancers get grouping together. I love the idea of it. I just think it really makes a lot of sense. It seems to go in lots of different directions the way that they're doing it. It really is not tightly defined. They're trying to be flexible and allow and help foster people really being innovative especially in startups but also to assist other companies that are not startups in outside the box thinking to achieve some bigger goals, innovation and collaboration together.

Surprised to hear a less techy more business/designer/education view of new technology. Going to have to binge listen!
