When someone says they are a hacker, what do they mean? Are they just big computer geeks? Are they doing illegal criminal things, breaking in and stealing passwords? Mitch Altman, inventor of the TV-B-Gone, tells us hacking is about thinking differently about the world around you. Featuring the folks at the Noisebridge hackerspace in San Francisco, who show off their projects with bikes, toys, clothes, food, electricity, and even outer space! (Thanks, Noisebridge! Thoisebridge!)

Music by Josh Anderson, Rob Vincent, and Gus Andrews, with affectionate respect to Charlie Tyson ("what's it like to be in school?") and Sesame Street.
