In 2007, Nick Farr organized Hackers on a Plane, a trip from Def Con to CCCamp, with tours of European hackerspaces thrown in. The trip was credited with stimulating the hackerspace scene in the US, with dozens of spaces started shortly after. Bre Pettis even called Nick the “Johnny Appleseed of hackerspaces.” Who knows what and whom this trip will inspire? Way cool.
