Hacking & hackers can be hard to visualize. In the popular imagination, the figure alternates between a menacing, hooded figure or some sort of drugged out, depressed juvenile hero. To counter such images, a group of us have spearheaded a new digitally-based video project, Hack_Curio that features hacker-related videos, culled from a range of sources, documentary film, newscasts, hacker conference talks, advertising, and popular film. In this talk, I will briefly discuss the purpose and parameters of Hack_Curio and spend most of the talk featuring our funniest, most obscure videos around hacking using them to reflect on some of the cultural and political features of hacking, past and present.
