The Mate phenomenon in hacker culture has pushed it’s reputation beyond a traditional communal drink to quasi-cult status, making Mate’s presence at Hackerspaces and Congresses such as the CCC and EHSM as necessary as Wi-Fi. Hackers are renowned for re-creating the rules, and the increased popularity of diverstiy and transparency has given rise to a range of ‘hacker-brauses’ based on open-source operating systems.
At Meta Mate we continue our quest to hack mate and leak out all of the information we discover along the way. At the OHM 2013 on 1 Aug 2013, Meta Mate presents a talk on CC Licensed drinks based on the Premium Cola model and offers a DIY Mate Hacking workshop. and range of open source unifying and communal drink amongst hackersDIY Mate Hacking lecutre and workshop at OHM 2013.
