Hackaday Monday Sipping

monday sipping

ahhh, good morning readers! new week, new stuff! get out your venti latte from starbucks, you’re gonna need it for what i have planned. so brace yourself fools.
the big news: very first hackaday meetup(s) in philadelphia, pa
where: rittenhouse square. 18th and walnut sts. middle of the park, just look for me with gizmos and hacking stuff.
when: thursday, june 16th –  7:30pm EST. probably until 9pm or so. don’t be tardy because after awhile we might move it into a place for dinner/liquor/discussions. but not anytime before 8pm at least.
what to expect: me going over the cvs digital camcorder hack, talking about hackaday, plans, the next podcast, we’ll be recording stuff for the next podcast too and taking pics (bring your cameras!). also, any hacks you want to talk about, just come along with them and we’ll open the floor to you to speak about it. we’ll all be discussing hacker lifestyle, culture, findings, and news. also the movie hackers. bring your laptops too since rittenhouse has tons of open wi-fi.
rules: not many except i expect all of you who show up to be polite, kind, friendly, and to introduce yourselves. i will not tolerate any kind of rudeness/offensiveness/hate. we’ll tie you down and make you become the next goatse.

any questions, e-mail me personally.

speaking of goatse, eliot is having a meeting too! here’s the details for his:
where: Bison Witches in Lincoln, NE. look for him wearing a goatse t-shirt. yes, you read right.
when: thursday, june 16th – 7:00 CST until whenever eliot says. again, tardiness is frowned upon.
what to expect: eliot looking for feedback, discussions on hacks, you can bring a hack you’ve done to talk about it and showcase it. a demonstration of the 10-minute WEP cracking demo. bring your ideas, discussions, laptops, and hacks he says.
rules: same stuff. we expect all of you who show up to be polite, kind, friendly, and to introduce yourselves. i will not tolerate any kind of rudeness/offensiveness/hate.

any questions about this meetup, e-mail eliot personally.

now, the big question is: “well i don’t live near those places! can’t i have a hackaday meeting?!!”
answer: of course you can. however, until the next batch of meetings, we can’t post them in a post (use the comments for now) and they will not be official so we can’t condone them at all. but i highly reccomend having one in a city near you in a very public spot so people can join up! unite!

so get giddy and excited. im busy this week, but i know i’ll be very excited come thursday night when i see all of you show up. i also expect tons of feedback and comments so let’s see this post become filled to the top with comments!

aside from the meetings, some other cool stuff to check out while you finish that donut:
great hack for the sony-ericsson k750i on a great cellphone forum! [kevinN]
make yourself a bitchin white-LED flashlight. [boomBOX]
more can cooling action for your pc and soda/booze [joe]
tiger for x86 was said to be floating around

  1. Damn, bad timing. Tonight is my high school graduation, otherwise I’d definately stop by. Hell, I’d have brought my CVS camcorder, IR webcam, spinning graduation cap, homebrew tazer, and hard drive speaker…

    Let me know when the next one is and I’m definately there.

  2. Great idea, only i cant make it. It’s a 14 hour trip for me since i live in holland. Any Dutch people here?

    I’d like to pimp up and automate my chicken’s coop. already build myself an incubator, but now my coop needs a little tinkering. Anybody any ideas for this?

  3. I think that the whole meeting should be recorded and then the video loaded up here so the people who couldn’t otherwise make it, can still see what happened. I know I’d like that.

  4. No age restrictions at all! That’s absurd. Anyone of any age/race/religion/creed is allowed! No restrictions. Also, if you wanna promote this meeting by linking directly to the post, that’d be great. Get the word out you mercenaries.

  5. i’m in the boston area… lowell is more like it – i work at the university here UMass of Lowell and could reserve a room (with enough jacks for internet connect/wifi) if needed…. email me if anyone is interested… strazz_AT_gmail_DOT_com

  6. I’m across the bridge aways in Atco.
    If I didn’t have plans made already I’d be there in a heartbeat.

    I’d love to bring some of my toy hacks to show off too. Maaaan. :(

  7. Anyone plan on hosting the video for us unlucky people who cant make it?

    I live in south jersey so its only like a 1 hour drive to philly but I have to be in class at 7:00AM for finals on friday :(

  8. Man, This Sorta Sux, Any One Live In The OC Area Of California? I’m In Santa Ana. And I’d Bring My Camera-Taser Hackthing, Yes Its A Little Old, But When I Made It I Didnt Have A Tutorial.

  9. in reply to #20 – I can host it on my club volleyball site… no realy traffic since it’s the summer – just make sure you send me a vidoe who ever does it to strazz_AT_gmail_DOT_com

  10. too bad i’m poor and my mom is evil…otherwise i would be there. i know you said there is no age restrictions, but that may be somewhat a wise choice in future outings so you don’t have a bunch of 13 year olds bumming rides (although I would most likly fly and not have my car… :)

  11. ~dang! I thought I could make it, but I got hs graduation and I haven’t got in enough trouble to get kicked out of it yet! I gotta say this going to be a monumental event. I won’t be suprised if this film will be all over the internet and maybe someday made into a show (is that a good thing?).
    ~I was wondering if the completly awesome people who run this thing ever read comments on old post. Just wondering.

  12. #36,

    Great idea with Google maps. If anybody is reading this (Ill put it up tomorrow too), I’ll be on the west-side of the park torward the hotels/buildings/rittenhouse ethical society building. Meet me over near there.

    Its the opposite end of where the google maps red pointer is. Diagnol Wise.

  13. Hey – just curious if anyone from Edmonton, Alberta is interested in starting hack-a-day meetings at all? If anyone is interested please contact me at kmosier@ualberta.ca and we can see how many in the area and hopefully get it setup and bring out some neat toys.

  14. does any one feel like flying to the other side of the world to pick me up? I live in brisbane.au and need a lift. or if peoples nearby (this side of earth) want a meetup i’ll be in [sVen]

  15. Here are some sites for you to have at! (root password oracle1), (root password n1ghth@wk?), and and (root password nighthawk or n1ghth@wk?).
