The  National Day of Hacking Your Own Assumptions and Entitlement is a sort of meta-hackathon, if you will… a inward-looking session in which hackathon participants “hack” their own outlook (not the mail client), reverse-engineering the various unexamined attitudes underpinning their choices & decisions: those same privileges & perspectives on which their participation in prior “Hackathons” were predicated.

Sometimes this involves psychedelic mushrooms or sensory deprivation or other enhanced self-interrogation techniques.

The result? Total loss of moral surety: a computer nerd no longer useful to the marketplace or the agendas of imperialism.
