Take on the machine: Episode One

From Vimby:
“This episode will serve as the introduction to the series and concept. In the coming weeks each hackerspace will have an individual episode devoted to their projects.”

“Thanks for all of your hard work in making this such an entertaining and interesting series. Special thanks to Mitch Altman for all of his hard work and guidance throughout the process.”

Upcoming Hackerspace Build-Off!


Full details have not been release yet; but this will be open to the public (as long as you fill out the release form). Here are the details so far:

- 5 Hackerspaces will compete in a professionally recorded web-only event.
- theTransistor has already been selected as one of these groups.
- The build-off should start the first week of August, but the exact dates are still unknown.
- The build-off will last 2-3 Weeks.
- Participants will not be required to show up every day.
- The build-off will revolve around a task that will be announced on day 1 to all participants.
- Each space will be given a budget to complete the task.
- As far as I know there are no prizes / etc for ‘winning’. This will be more about learning and doing.
- Participants will not be required to be a member of the hackerspace or pay any entry fees to help.
- Participants appearing on camera will need to sign a basic agreement with the producing company. ( Very basic: you aren’t allowed to talk about the results / etc. until after it ‘airs’, they aren’t responsibly if you blow up / melt / etc.)
- You DON’T need any special skills; this should be about the community. Anyone who would like to can participate.

If this interests you please stop by this weekend (2010.07.31, 6:00pm) for more details and to sign up. This will be a great opportunity to get together and help with a project.
