Interactivos?'13, Tools for a Read-Write World

The Libre Graphics magazine team took part as advisors in Interactivos?'13, an event hosted by Medialab Prado.

The premise of Interactivos? is to promote the development of promising ideas by joining together practitioners and learners, who spend a week hacking and building beautiful outcomes.

The theme of Interactivos?'13 was “Tools for a Read/Write World.” In this dispatch, we feature the projects that represent the 9 different takes on this theme by a diverse group of experts and enthusiasts.
