CATS is an opportunity for Northwest Anarchist and
anarchist-inspired tech activists, geeks, sysadmins, programmers
and web-designers to share their skills, learn from others,
socialize, and make revolution.
We will be engaged in hands on practice in pairs and small groups
based on the projects, skills, and desires people bring. We hope to
use much of the time to problem solve actual projects. So bring
well formulated projects you want help with or which could be
used as a learning device. Likely topics might include hardware,
linux, running a web/mail/list server, programming, databases,
wireless, networking, etc.

This skill-share is for techies, but for techies with a wide variety
of skill levels. Participants are expected to have familiarity with
basic linux commands.

Tech culture is often characterized by oppressive modes of
knowledge dissemination. We seek to build a new culture of
participatory knowledge sharing informed by the need to resist
patriarchy, white-supremacy, capitalism, and heterosexism. We
reject status based on expertise. We reject status, period. We
also recognize that, for any given topic, some of us have more to
learn and some have more to teach. Our goal is to make the
movement stronger by democratizing access to specialized
knowledge.

Lets face it: despite our best intentions, this stuff gets really
geeky really quickly and can be alienating to all but the most
hardcore. Therefore, everyone will be required to say, "i don't
know!" and "what do you mean?" at least five times a day (no
exceptions).

If you plan on attending, can offer housing in Seattle, or need
housing in Seattle, please contact cats@riseup.net. For updates,
subscribe to the skill-share mailing list at
cats-subscribe@lists.riseup.net. Bring your own hardware.
