We made it here last night around 10:30ish. Stayed up talking with people till about 2am, and the con hadn’t even started yet. What a fun weekend. –Friday Morning
I was going to make this a live blogging type of post, but the network at the hotel sucked. We were basically cut off from the Internet for most of the weekend. It would have helped us get the photo booth working better, but oh well I guess. Its been through four cons, and numerous parties. Its about time for an upgrade. The USB Auth Door went over fairly well. Hak.5 is suppose to be calling us for an interview, which needless to say is Awesome! And apparently Strages got a lot of good feedback from people stopping and playing with the multi-touch table. Which is fairly awesome, because it was kind of a last minute project that started falling into place.
Now on to what happen. I can only really speak of what happen during the day because both nights are kind of a blur.
- Friday, I watched a few talks, one about U3, another about making AK47′s, and a few others. I didn’t really learn anything that awesome. The talk about making AK47′s was about how you go about importing an AK47 in peaces then putting it back together, and some of the rules behind that. It was fairly informative, and something I didn’t even know was out there.
- Saturday, morning sucked, lets just leave it at that. At one point in the day I headed to the Hacker Consortium to check out there place. Its a lot bigger than our hacker space, but we are working on fixing that. Before heading out there, a bunch of us watched SkyDog’s talk about how they found the place and what kind of crap they have been through with it. Pretty cool talk. Oh and we had five meat calzone at some point.
- Sunday we headed back around 12, stopped at a Cracker Barrel for food, then back to HSV. Strages and I unloaded the photo booth and other things at the shop, then we went driving around downtown looking for new make shops. At one point we were walking down an alley and in front of us we see about 50 zombies walking down the street. I swear it a scene right out of a movie. Craziest thing ever.
I realize i didn’t go into a lot of detail, but it has been over a week. I don’t remember all of it. Maybe next year the Internet will be better and I can do a live blogging kind of thing. Anyways you can still check out some of the pics I took.
