Make Something at the June Synchronous Hackathon

robfitz on the blog put out a call for hackerspaces to participate in this month’s global synchronous hackathon.

The challenge for the June Synchronous Hackathon is inspired by Adam Savage, the co-host of MythBusters, who gave a talk a couple of weeks ago at Maker Faire Bay Area 2012.

In Adam’s talk titled “Why We Make”, he describes how and why we are compelled to make the things we make. He also introduces the following manifesto:

“It doesn’t matter what you make and it doesn’t matter why, the importance is that you are making something.”

So to support this manifesto I’m asking hackerspaces worldwide to take part in the Synchronous Hackathon over the weekend of the 16th and 17th of June.

And the challenge for members and visitors is very simple “Make Something”.
