Dorkbot38: Nightmare on Dork Street UPDATE

-dustin younse-
We have finalized three presenters, check out the excellent projects
that are being presented below!

Dorkbot38: Nightmare on Dork Street
Monday, October 15
7:00-9:30
ND Austin
501 Brushy Street (at I-35 and E 5th St) 78702

Christian Miller decided that he wanted a fancy business card, so he
made one that is a small portable video game system. nbd, just a retro
game business card. *totallyabigdealy'all

Damien Di Fede rocked the socks off of Fantastic Arcade with
Dancingularity and will now pull back the curtain to show Dorkbot how
he did it, including using Processing to write the software for The
Dancingularity, the reason for running it in Linux, and the hardware
used to create the web of mats.

For just over a century, amateur radio operators or “hams” have been
working in basements and attics, taking things apart and putting them
together to hear the crackle of a voice coming from the static.
Today’s hams build and use technologies in new and creative ways and
have fun doing it, talking to people around the world or across town
with a simple radio and antenna, providing real time information and
public service communications in disasters, and volunteering as the
comms backbone for events such as bike rides and marathons. Join
Steven Polunsky, Jeff Schmidt, and Jim Kinter for demonstrations
ranging from the simplest homebrew to the advanced digital high-speed
multimedia capability in use around Austin. Maybe some wave physics,
too.

If you have an excellent project you would like to show off, please
let us know at [hidden email]!

Humbly Your Overlord,

Dustin Younse
