Chaos Computer Club: Full Steam Ahead

Craft & Design Home

A Reminder: Germany’s Chaos Computer Club’s Call for Participation for its 24th Chaos Communication Congress 2007 (Dec 27 – 30) ends on Oct. 12. This year, the theme is Volldampf voraus! (or “Full Steam Ahead”), i.e. steampunk! Jens of CCC writes:

This year’s congress introduces a new category for talks called “Making”. This category is all about making and breaking things and the wonderful stuff you can build in your basement or garage. Most welcome are submissions dealing with the latest in electronics, 3D-fabbing, climate-change survival technology, robots and drones, steam machines, alternative transportation tools and guerrilla-style knitting.
