by Prasad Krishna published Mar 09, 2011 last modified Oct 21, 2011 08:24 AM — filed under:

On Saturday, April 2, 2011, CIS is organising a workshop for people to learn on how to think beyond the rules and limitations of Facebook, to tweak and play around the features and design to generate useful, creative, and funny concepts and explore how this creative intervention can be turned into a real software developed by the Facebook Resistance.
