The Art Of Hackaday Hack Chat

Join us on Wednesday, May 15 at noon Pacific for the The Art of Hackaday Hack Chat with Joe Kim!

Here at Hackaday, we writers strive to bring you the freshest hacks and the best news from the world of engineering and science. When we miss the mark and make technical errors or stake out a controversial position on something, our readers will certainly let us know in the comments section. It’s a love-hate thing.

While we don’t always see eye to eye, there’s one thing that everyone seems to agree on: Hackaday’s art is amazing! Our unique look comes down to one man: art director Joe Kim. Joe’s creations have graced Hackaday’s pages for years, and his ability to come up with just the right art to illustrate subject matter that’s often complicated and abstract never ceases to amaze.

join-hack-chatA lot of you have asked about Hackaday’s art over the years, so we asked Joe to come on the Hack Chat to talk about the process of creating these mini masterpieces. If you’ve ever wondered about the art of Hackaday, or just wanted to say thanks for the visual feast, here’s your chance.

Our Hack Chats are live community events in the Hack Chat group messaging. This week we’ll be sitting down on Wednesday, May 15 at 12:00 PM Pacific time. If time zones have you tied up, we have a handy time zone converter.

    Hackaday is read world-wide, so it’ll make more sense to use UTC in articles than to expect every reader to juggle foreign TZs.

      1. I’ll not discuss their mental capacities now. Maybe later… somewhen…

        Independently of this I’m convinced that publications for a global readership should use UTC.

        If that assumption is wrong, please geolock Hackaday to the US immediately.

        1. “I don’t want to let other people access information unless I agree with every tiny aspect of how it is presented, no matter whether anyone is actually harmed.”

        2. The ‘center of the world’ was once the Greenwich observatory.

          The ‘center of the internet’ is the Palo Alto ring.

          Get over it. You’ll learn eventually. Even the Frogs have given up on ‘frogish is the language of science’. Mostly anyhow.

          In the meantime continue snarking like a middle schooler.
          That surely gives the impression that ‘ur the smart one’.
          If you were smart, you would have moved to the USA by now.

      2. Watch out, what if someone traveling or someone at one of the poles or in space wants to know? Better give a unix timestamp in seconds and let them convert it into a date and time of day on their own just to be sure. Make sure to apologize for not correcting for general and special relativity to be accurate in the void between worlds, just in case any aliens might want to listen in.

      3. Isn’t EST/EDT unfriendly to those on the other coast?

        Also, having had to schedule many meetings with the US, I’ve found that EST and EDT are not necessarily the same, and often say one and mean the other, so I tend not to trust them.

  2. Joe Kim is probably the only online artist that I know by name and his work by sight. HaD is a wonderful publication, but Joe’s work is next level.

    Thanks so much for publishing his masterpieces!

  3. This might be the best one you’ve ever run… certainly the first I’ll see if I can make!

    … if of course I can work out when it is! You could at least link to a timezone converter which doesn’t need a privacy warning?

    I assume these are recorded if we miss them?
