F.A.T. – Pirates from the 21st century.

Artists, hackers, motherfuckers.

I can’t describe accurately the mood of this guys, but the flavours of their philosophy inspire me. Some of them are part of the collective Graffiti Research Lab.

As FAT says:

Dedicated to enriching the public domain one mutha-fuckin LOL at a time

The Free Art and Technology Lab is an organization dedicated to enriching the public domainthrough the research and development of creative technologies and media. The entire FAT network of artists, engineers, scientists, lawyers, musicians and Bornas  are committed to supporting open values and the public domain through the use of emerging open licenses, support for open entrepreneurship and the admonishment of secrecy, copyright monopolies and patents.

As I understand the act of working today, there’s a huge difference by being just on your own, or to share projects with others. Feedback and collaborative creation make creativity even more interesting. Discovering collectives like FAT is an incentive and an inspiration.
