This is the Policy Manual for HacDC. This is version 0.1. All policy pages are protected and can only be modified by vote of the membership at a membership meeting. A hard copy of the policy in effect exists at HacDC in the Public Inspection Locker

(Note: As of 4/10/08 these pages are still being edited and discussed.)

The Core Policy Concept : C4K

Our core policy concept is Command, Control, Communications, Collaboration, and Khaos. It is loosely based on the military concept of C4I, which stands for Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence.

  • Collaboration: We are here to collaborate. In one word, it is what we do. In serving charitable, educational and scientific purposes, our five point mission statement says that HacDC:
  1. Build and maintain spaces suitable for technical and social collaboration
  2. Collaborate on all forms of technology, culture and craft in new and interesting ways
  3. Apply the results of its work to specific cultural, charitable and scientific causes
  4. Freely share its research and discoveries, using what is learned to teach others (which is why we follow a very liberal Licensing Policy)
  5. Recruit and develop talented members dedicated to these purposes
  • Khaos: Seeking, manipulating and leveraging Khaos for public benefit is the general policy of HacDC. It is also the only unprotected policy page and designated graffiti wall on our wiki.
