Kids Workshop - Good People doing bad Things

Tolle Idee, hätte mir als Kind sicher auch gefallen, hätte sogar jetzt noch Spaß daran: Ein Workshop, in dem man lernt, wie man Autos knackt, Kofferräume öffnet und Autos kurzschließt! Kein Shice, gibt es in L.A :-), wie Mark in seinem Blog berichtet.

Love this idea! Ok, I have to admit that I don't have a car, but even if... :-)))
Mark tells in boingboing:
Last weekend I took my daughter Jane and her friend Anna to a workshop in Los Angeles to teach them how to break into cars, get out of a lock car trunk, and hotwire a car.
The workshop was part of Machine Project's "Good People Doing Bad Things" curriculum and was conducted by Tom Jennings (the creator of FidoNet, the founder of one of the first Internet service providers, and the founder and publisher of the fanzine Homocore) and Jason Torchinsky (an artist, author, and Boing Boing guest blogger).

Then we all went downstairs and outside to where Mark Allen's (Director of Machine Project) locked car was parked.

Tom and Jason showed the kids the tools of the trade for getting into a locked car: a putty knife, a coat hanger, and a pair of pliers.

They let the kids figure out what to do, and with a little guidance the kids were successfully able to unlock the car.
Finally, Tom and Jason demonstrated how to hotwire a car, starting it without a key.

They didn't let the kids do this, because of the low voltage shock they might get. And in fact, Tom gave himself a couple of shocks during the demonstration, much to the delight of the kids.,,, more on boingboing.

I completely agree with the above comment, the internet is with a doubt growing into the most important medium of communication across the globe and its due to sites like this that ideas are spreading so quickly.

Seems like sellers of these things simply have another model for generating revenue. To this end, I’ll look for other, less expensive, marketing tools. Thanks for this hard research.

Good luck getting people behind this one. Though you make some VERY fascinating points, youre going to have to do more than bring up a few things that may be different than what weve already heard. What are trying to say here? What do you want us to think? It seems like you cant really get behind a unique thought. Anyway, thats just my opinion.

Nice one! If I could write like this I would be well chuffed. The more I read articles of such quality as this (which is rare), the more I think there might be a future for the Net. Keep it up, as it were.
