Hackers, in the wide positive sense, are often enthusiastic presenters of their practical experience and exploits, but quite indifferent to writing papers. By contrast, scientists are good at writing papers, but often oblivious to the actual details of practice. At times, this difference in approach incites antagonistic attitudes between these communities. We wanted to mingle the two, shall we say, the explorers and the explanators, for mutual inspiration and communication to the benefit of the conference topic. Certainly a risky ambition, but we wanted to give it a try. And judging by the response from the participants, we succeeded!
