How to Hack the Web
What do we mean when we say "HACK" ?
What makes the web unique?
Participation- anyone can participate or innovate on the web without asking permission from others.
You can see the content and understand it, remix it and make something new
The web is made up of components that are like lego building blocks- that let you make an infinite # of things
The world of the web encourages remixing to make new things because that is how it is built
Why should you know how to code?
Could you imagine being able to read but not write?
Knowing how to read and write code allows you to be an active participant in this world wide web
Make sure that you have one of the following web browsers open:
Go to: www.hackasaurus.org/goggles
Make sure that you have your Bookmarks Toolbar displayed
View > ToolbarsTools > Always show BookmarksView > Show Bookmarks BarView > Toolbars
After you install the goggles, visit a webpage that you would like to hack and click on the "Web X-Ray Goggles" tab in your Bookmarks toolbar.
Now, as you move your cursor around the screen- you should be able to see the HTML element information.
Click the "R" key to open up the Remix window.
Look in the code for the part that you want to change, and make that edit. The "pretty" view makes it easier for you to see where you need to make changes. Click "Ok" when finished.
Now you should see your hacked website. Press "ESC" to deactivate the goggles or "T" to share your webpage.
