Will Hackers and Makers Save Car Culture?
Car culture is dead according to a June 29, 2013 article in the New York Times.

From iPads in dashboards to affordable self-driving vehicles, we think hackers and makers are going to see the car as the next great platform.
In this panel we'll look at how these groups are modifying cars and why they will swell the ranks of car enthusiasts in the coming years.
We'll discuss whether all this will be enough to rekindle automotive passion among teens and twenty-somethings, and save car culture for generations to come.
