Doxa Orange right arrow The Public Laboratory for Open Source Technology

The name alone makes you want to check out what these guys do. And what they do is pretty neat:

Using inexpensive DIY techniques, we seek to change how people see the world in environmental, social, and political terms. We are activists, educators, technologists, and community organizers interested in new ways to promote action, intervention, and awareness through a participatory research model.

Check out the balloon mapping and DIY touchtable. Also, some of this has been used in the recent Occupy protests. Cool stuff: http://publiclaboratory.org/home

Thx Kristin for the find.
