Catherine Bracy: Why good hackers make good citizens
9:50 · Filmed September 2013 at TEDCity2.0 · Subtitles available in 24 languages

Hacking is about more than mischief-making or political subversion. As Catherine Bracy describes in this spirited talk, it can be just as much a force for good as it is for evil. She spins through some inspiring civically-minded projects in Honolulu, Oakland and Mexico City — and makes a compelling case that we all have what it takes to get involved.
