Byzantium Sprint Reminder

This is a reminder about the Byzantium Sprint happening this weekend. We are planning on doing livedistro work including coding and packaging and testing of software. We are meeting at the space on Friday at 8pm for more detailed planning. There will be pizza. We are planning on starting at noon on both Saturday and Sunday. If you have especially new and/or common hardware capable of connecting to an adhoc wifi network please feel free to bring it in on Saturday or Sunday afternoons and we’ll see if anything in the livedistro breaks :)

HacDC Mentioned on FastCompany.com

We got a big mention on an article on Fast Company a business news magazine and blog. The article is about how hackerspaces are doing good things for the world. They feature the Tokyo hackerspace’s endeavour to help keep people safe after the earthquake and nuclear meltdown along with our Project Byzantium which aims to provide network connectivity in the event the traditional infrastructure goes down.
