This talk will engage the practises and protocols of hacking in the context of Hong Kong, drawing parallels from the stigmergic responses of the city (consensus network organisation) and the peer-production (or attempt) of the hackerspace, Dim Sum Labs. Perspectives on this will also draw from the publication, The Field Guide to Hacking (_TFGTH), a collection of (project and essay) snapshots generated from the hackerspace and its surrounding community.

Part II: Dim Sum Labs and _TFGTH: Hong Kong's First and Only Hackerspace II.i Brief introduction to our space and activities II.ii Introduction of the book (_TFGTH) II.iii A few excerpts within II.iv Demonstration of the interactive cover of the book

Part III: Peer Production: Collaborative Scenarios III.i Meritocracy vs Democracy III.ii How this applies in the space/ III.iii How this applied to the project (_TFGTH) III.iv How this applies to the city III.v Parallels between hacking and urbanism
