the electrohippie collective

Welcome to the electrohippies 'web presence'

...we're not here at the moment, but if you read our stuff you can try to help yourself!

The electrohippie collective are a group exploring the on-line boundaries of protest, organising, and the use of technologically mediated systems for networking, freedom of expression and communications in support of community or individual campaigns.

Arising out of a group of 'electronic' environmental and social activists during the late 1990s, "the electrohippies" became infamous after the Seattle Protests in 1999. Since then they have focussed on activities that keep them out of the news due to the obstructive hassles that such notoriety creates.

Today we're still avoiding the limelight, primarily because we've found over the years that we can achieve far more 'behind the scenes', helping others to realize their own needs as we pass our skills on to them.

If you'd like to learn more about us/about our past activities then please read the Computer animation imageWorld-view Overview page. This provides background information, and some tacky videos, describing our origins and our motivations. It also has a large numbers of links to the media coverage (both for and against) our work, as well as links to our past occasional papers and communiqués.

To look into our murky past, we suggest that you peruse our various archive pages:
