Information literacy = hack?

Maybe the idea I’m germinating is…developing the ability to hack your environment.  Digital or otherwise.  Especially otherwise.  Hacking your daily life with technological tools.  Or not always so technological.

Hacking implies understanding and using tools.  So maybe it’s not transliteracy, but trans-hacking….  Start playing with the sematics and compare models. …

Ah, Captiain Zap says: (and here)

” Grow up and learn to hack your environment to understand what you are living in. Question everything that comes before you and don’t take it for granted that it will be alright.”

And that echoes my comment (or rather my comment echoes…) about taking responsibility for managing your information resources.
