Abstract

What are Anarchist Hackers? Well considering hackers and libertarian ideas are very prevalent in the hacker culture, only recently in the last 10-15 years a big group of hackers have started to make this another part of the hacker culture along with hardware hackers, software hackers, lock pickers, journalist and so on... Anarchist Hackers are not only Hacktivists, they are full blown 100% hackers involved in the hacker culture that believe that Anarchism and the hacker culture are very similar and compatible, specially if you look at Steven Levy's hacker ethics. To read more you can check this at Noisebridge the first denominated Anarchist Hacker Space in the US Wiki page about Anarchist Hackers

Where

We are meeting and hanging out virtually using Mozilla Hubs

  1. Our Virtual Anarchist Hacker neighborhood
  2. you can click here

Why Mozilla Hubs

We try to always follow the hacker ethics specially to use open free software and hardware, before all VR rooms where propietary remember second life? it was cool but it was centralized and propietary so until now there was not VR enviroment that you could install your own node and share freely with other people. We use Mozilla hubs because we though it will be a great way to interact with people and do things together like watch documentaries, listen to music and chat. is a mix between CHAT, Video conferecing, Bulleting Board email and 3d space, in CyberSpace.

Help & Troubleshooting

The first time the VR room loads into your browser will be around 30 secs or so because the VR objects need to download. After this procedure and as long you use the same browser it will be in cache.

Regular usage Help and RTFM

What browsers we recommend

  • We use Chromium, Firefox, and Qutebrowser as it needs to support webGL obviously.
  • Phone works but may take longer, see phone navigation here

How to fix common issues

Try some of these troubleshooting steps to fix issues that users have experienced, such as not being able to see buildings or avatar skins:

1) Try changing settings to lower resource usage by opening the URL, check on your TOP LEFT and open the menu, click on Preferences and then Misc tab and try changing Max Resolution to a lower number or try changing Material quality to low.

2) Try changing your browser to use the mobile version If you append "?mobile" to a VR link, then it will force render to mobile, which can help some computers load the VR rooms. - Ex: https://hubs.mozilla.com/zWXK8U6/hispagatos/?mobile

Other options

  • If you want to idle in VR, then tell your browser to allow idle by appending "?allow_idle" to a VR link, then it will let you idle in the VR room.
