Toorcamp is coming!

Hey, I like a good party like anyone else. I’ve been drooling over some of the projects coming out of burning man for years. However, the ratio of “gettin’ crazy” to “build awesome stuff” seems to be slanted in favor of the party experience. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. However, when I saw this, my eyes welled up with tears of joy.

ToorCamp is Burning Man with less drugs and more hacking. This summer ToorCamp will take place on the northwest corner of the staggeringly beautiful Olympic Peninsula. Just get yourself out there!

Located at the Hobuck beach resort near Neah Bay WA, Toorcamp is a 4 day event that should pull in roughly 1,000 enthusiastic hackers. There are four “villages” that you can wander through; the lock picking village, the hardware hackers village, the maker’s village, and the crafting village. All should include bountiful talks and hands on workshops. There’s also a quiet camp if you really really want to avoid the inevitable sporadic parties.

    Burning Man with less drugs and more hacking? No thanks!
    BTW you can hack as much as you want on burning man :-)

    Anyway… You are welcome to middle-european burning man alternative with both :-)

    Quiet camp, nice idea, but I can’t imagine people from the other camps respecting that, especially after a few drinks.

    i have been to the man many times and love it. but its harder for me to relate to the drugs and parties the older i get. this sounds like a great idea. I’m going to try to make it to toorcamp this year and see what its all about. sounds like a blast.

    Sucks they’re not in the Titan-1 missile silo again this year! Was really looking forward to exploring that sucker; plus it’s about 6 hours closer! :-(

    I really want to go to this, but I’m all the way on the east side of the country. Wish I knew a fellow hacker with an RV who would be up for a road trip…

    Really wish I could attend this. Looked at the photos and the place looks quite beautiful. Hanging out with hackers all weekend is a plus too :)
