Synchronous hackathon March 20-21


The cats at are calling for a worldwide hackathon in hackerspaces the weekend of March 20th, 2010. These events are the third weekend of every month, with the inaugural event held last November.

Hackerspaces participating in past events have included Chicago’s PS1, Luxembourg’s Syn2cat, Ireland’s TOG, France’s Tetalab, Saint Louis’s Arch Reactor and a bunch more besides. Most spaces share ustream feeds during the events.

Might be a good opportunity to work on your Robot Build projects? Is your hackerspace participating? Does a monthly event have value? Leave your thoughts in comments.

    Greetings from 757Labs in Norfolk, Virginia.

    Pi and Kive from Freeside Atlanta visited our space this week and mentioned this event, and that they had participated in it in Atlanta.

    Another friend here (who wasn’t there for the conversation) had mentioned the event, so it sounds like we will join in the fun!!!

    We’ll try to get a couple of cameras and a switcher setup to run a good feed.

    I’m not part of a hackerspace (Though I’d like to see a Hackerspace Ottawa, Canada), I think monthly might become a bit routine, as opposed to something special or out-of-the-ordinary. Maybe semi-annually, or quarterly?
