Interesting parallels to hacker culture...

"Gambiarra is the Brazilian practice of makeshifts, the art of
resorting to quirky and smart improvisation in order to repair what
doesn't work or to create what you need with what you have at your
disposal. Gambiologia is the 'science' that studies this form of
creative improvisation and celebrates it by combining it with
electronic-digital techniques...."
