There is definitely a hacker stereotype. Dr. Tim Summers wants us to flip the pervasive idea that hackers are criminals and do not create positive impact. In his talk, Tim draws on both his research and personal experience as a hacker to let us in on how hackers think and how understanding the "hacker mindset" might help all of us be more creative and prepared to solve today's and tomorrow's vexing problems.
Dr. Timothy C. Summers is a hacker, professor, and consulted expert on the theory and practice of hacker cognitive psychology. Tim is also the Founder of WikiBreach.org and the Director of Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Engagement at the University of Maryland, College Park, in the College of Information Studies (iSchool).
