Join us at the Supplyframe Design Lab to kick off the 2016 Hackaday Prize with two guest speakers and time to show off your projects! (Message Liz Krane if you want to do a 2-minute talk/demo.) We'll bring the food and drinks, you bring the discussion about hacking for social good!
Featured Guest Speakers:
• Robert de Groot on Caltech's Quake-Catcher Network, a citizen science project that hopes to create the world's largest, low-cost strong-motion seismic network! This collaborative initiative uses a distributed computing network to let individuals improve earthquake monitoring with real-time motion sensing. The Quake-Catcher Network team also uses this project for educational outreach programs.
• Stu McLellan on cryptocurrency - Are cryptocurrencies the biggest disruptor since the dawn of the internet? Genuine revolution or passing fad? Stu is both a technologist and an entrepreneur interested in how new technologies can empower people.
Call for Lightning Talks:
It wouldn't be a Hackaday meetup without some great projects and ideas. If you have a topic or project you'd like to speak about for two minutes, get in touch with Liz Krane!
