Hacker Helpline, like free office hours for physical computing questions

Musician, artist, engineer and programmer Eric Singer is starting an interesting project, called the hacker helpline. For a few hours a week, he’ll be taking calls on Skype to help answer your questions about building physical things:

Hacker Helpline is a new service from Eric Singer of the League of Electronic Musical Urban Robots. For a few hours a week, Eric will be on Skype, ready to answer your questions about projects, electronics, software, robotics, physical computing, etc.

To contact the Hacker Helpline, open Skype and add contact “hackerhelpline”. Then look in the Mood section to see dates and hours. During those times, you can chat in and get help (or get queued up for help if a previous chat is active). A/V chats are supported (even preferred…it’s nice to see who you’re talking to).

Hacker Helpline launches on March 23rd at 10 am EST.
