Workshop - ETHICAL RESEARCH IN THE MAKER/HACKER MOVEMENT

For some years, MHackers have attracted the interest of researchers, as the number of studies on this topic showed. As an effect of this growing interest, Fablabs, and MHackers are more and more often requested to answer toll yet another survey, to further support the analysis with the aim of "better understanding the movement".

Even if some researchers are aware of the spirit of the "common" in the MHackers communities and will give back to the community their results, often they do not play the commons game. In this fourth seminar, we (Vulca) want to start a discussion between MHackers, researchers, and organizations about the ethics of research.

What are the roles of researchers and MHackers? What are their relative positions? What are the desirable patterns of engagement? Who owns the questions, the answers, the data, the interpretations?
