Gabe Sawhney is a hacker working at the edges of code and culture. He is co-creator of [murmur], a location-specific oral storytelling project that makes accessible the hidden stories of cities in Canada, the US and the UK. He is the co-founder of WirelessToronto, a community group offering free-to-use hotspots in public and publicly-accessible spaces in the city, each featuring its own "hyperlocal" community portal. Gabe is involved with several other web, locative, video and installation projects bridging art, politics and technology. His heart rests firmly with the simple, the intuitive, and the cheap.
