[edit] Suggested activities

Ideas from ML:

  • Wall of Sheep (sniffing & why encrypting your internet communication is not only for hackers) [by Kabel]
  • Rogue Access Point
  • 'Tracking Thing' (potentially)
  • TagBot
  • Clutter
  • Preparation of rekult stuff
  • Bristlebot
  • Throwies
  • LaserTagging
  • Intro to soldering
  • Start reprap or makerbot assembly
  • Quadrokopter
  • Arduinos
  • Twittering Power Meeters (Wireless via X-Bee)
  • Mich's coffee table
  • Surveillance Watch
  • some animation / game project with blender?

[edit] Surroundings

We will sell some food there to get some ca$h

  • Barbeque (food hacker)
  • Drinks (Mate!)
  • Breakfast
  • Coffeemachine (mAcfreAk will bring Espresso and normal machine)
  • We could sell some shirts too ;)
I'm not sure if it would be a good idea / affordable to order one shirt of the most popular designs and have them on display? It would be quite expensive.. so maybe just 2 or 3 types. We don't actually want to sell them, so you could theoretically use yours ;) If people are interested, point them to the webshop or offer to order and have them pick it up when they arrive (advance payment of course)
  • We should also include a donation pot for people who want to donate something to our ASBL.
  • Do we already have some stuff that could be auctioned off?

[edit] Who?

Any hacker is welcome to give a hand. You do not need to show off your project(s) if you don't want to or don't have one right now. Simply be there with us in a relax atmosphere and enjoy a drink or two ;-)
