Communications of the ACM on hacking and innovation

The last issue of Communications of the ACM is about "Hacking and Innovation". There are some very interesting papers about that topic; ranging from hacker ethic to hardware hacking and academic freedom.

Why do I blog this? that's a topic I am interested because it wraps up some thoughts about independent activities (research, design), connected to a new ecology of doers.
