Description

"MetaReciclagem was created in 2002, first as a collective in São Paulo, Brazil, focused on reassembling used computers, installing free and open source software and delivering them to social projects. Soon MetaReciclagem became an open network with hundreds of members in all regions of Brazil working with critical appropriation of ICTs. Through a strong emphasis on DIY and low tech, all sorts of used equipment are seen as instrumental, educational and artistic source materials that can be disassembled and remixed, giving youngsters access to infrastructure, networking, knowledge and opportunities, working towards a future interconnected and a common-based economy."
