Take On The Machine: Artisans Asylum Starts The Day Off Right

New kids on the block, Artisan’s Asylum are out to make waves with their Wallace and Gromit inspired breakfast making Rube Goldberg Machine.  Take note of their egg cracking contraption which worked beautifully so long as you’re not picky about having yours sunny side up.  I should mention that there was some goading by our own president about Artisan’s project stealing the show.  While I’ll wait for the official word on best in show, I’ll also take a moment to compliment those Boston folk on a job well done, truly a noteworthy hack.

That’s not all the action VIMBY’s got for us though.  The Transistor in Provo, UT is our last contender coming up and I smell some pandering for the zombie enthusiast vote.

An Open Research Network

When you connect to the network at Pumping Station: One by plugging in or via wireless, you are joining a very special network.

We’re one of the first networks to join with Agora Link.  Agora is the North American arm of a global Research network that is linking hackerspaces’ internal networks together into one awesome collaborative mesh.   We’re tied in with the ChaosVPN in Germany, and as of this past weekend we have 50 registered end points.  If interested, you can read more here:

What’s the payoff?  First up is a plan to host an international CTF competition using hackerspaces and other labs as the meeting points for teams. So look for more details on that in the near future.

More developments on this will be popping up throughout the next year.
