Just got back from a much-too-short a presentation by the good doctor named above, a.k.a. wrongsov, on the subject of Creative Hacktivism. In his many years towards his PhD in what field I'm not quite sure, he's done projects in Turkey, Norway and Estonia among other places, relating to fashion, revitalization of local industry, recycling and the environment. Mind-blowing stuff; I'm in need of digesting after checking several web sites, but as starters, I got down the following he mentioned...
SELF_PASSAGE (left side bar has loads of links)
Recyclopedia ("cookbooks" for recycling garments)
iTalyan Avlusu - recycling/exchange project in Turkey
Merimetsa - art college/mental institution/local fashion house collaboration
Swap-O-Rama-Rama (recycling/cloth swap)
Roomservices (small scale urban revitalization?)
