<h1 class='summary'>Binary beers</h1>
<p>(<time datetime="2011-01-22">Tuesday, January 11nd, 2011</time>)</p>
</header>
<p class='description'>
Another Binary Day is upon us! We shall celebrate 11/01/11 with a traditional display of beer-moistened geekery.<br /><br />
For those who have never made it, Binary Beers is a laid-back, chilled-out evening of hacking and beer, which may transition into a rambunctious night of beer and hacking. Binary Beers are open to all, including those who have no interest in binary or beer. Bringing a laptop or a project is a good idea, although there will inevitably be chatting, networking, and sharing of ideas. <br /><br />
If anyone coming to Binary Beers is interested in working on the <a href='http://hackerspaces.org/wiki/Global_Hackerspace_Cupcake_Challenge'>cupcake challenge</a>, let me know and I'll bake up some prototypes. You know, for science. <br /><br />
For anyone dedicated enough to read to the end of this email, but too busy to do the math, 11/01/11 is next Tuesday. See you there!<br /><br />

SHHH is a non-exclusive event intended for creative and curious people
interested in technology. We're about knowledge sharing, technology
exploration, and ad-hoc collaboration. Come to have fun, build things,
learn things, and meet new people. If you've got a project you're
working on, bring it along, or just bring yourself. Laptops are
recommended, unless you have something even cooler to work on.</p>
<p>Ideally we'll have our makerbot cranking things out during SHHH. </p>

<p class='description'>VHS and myself offer a twist on hacking, it's Gender Hacking;) Don't worry, there will be no cutting and pasting of genitalia or permanent changes made to you, only a temporary blurring of lines. Come out and let's play with gender. I have an airbrush and lots of different kinds of makeup, wigs and accessories we can use. Let's explore the gender continuum by bringing out the femininity in the guys while still remaining masculine, and the masculinity out of the gals while still remaining feminine. Or as extreme as you can dream. We got cool lights on the ceiling, we'll have some music, bring some beer or bevies, and let's just have some silly fun. I don't have enough of everything for everyone, so please if you have or can borrow, outfits, hair, makeup, footwear( as I am a mens 9 1/2, womans 11) etc bring it and I will work with you to co-create your own alter ego. Good/evil, pretty/butch.....your call. We can document this, or not;) I will also share a little of my journey with my own gender flux and it's effect on my life.

<p class='description'>"Tor is free software and an open network that helps you defend against a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security known as traffic analysis.
<br><br>Tor protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location. Tor works with many of your existing applications, including web browsers, instant messaging clients, remote login, and other applications based on the TCP protocol."

<h1 class='summary'>VHS Crafter Night (modular origami)</h1>
<p>(<time datetime="2010-07-19">Monday Sept 20th</time>)</p>
</header>
<p class='description'>Modular origami, or unit origami, is a paperfolding technique which uses multiple sheets of paper to create a larger and more
complex structure than would be possible using single-piece origami techniques. Each individual sheet of paper is folded into a module, or unit, and
then modules are assembled into an integrated flat shape or three-dimensional structure by inserting flaps into pockets created by the folding
process. These insertions create
tension or friction that holds the model together.</p><br/>

<p class='description'>August 3rd, we'll be doing the second el wire hack night. For those who missed it, the first one was a blast.</p>
<p>Why learn to work with el wire? First, because el wire is just plain sexy (see: <a href='http://hacknmod.com/hack/create-oustanding-lighting-effects-el-wire/'>http://hacknmod.com/hack/create-oustanding-lighting-effects-el-wire/</a> ). Second, for those coming to Burning Man this year, making some el wire gear is a great way to avoid spending your playa nights as a darkwad, also known as speed bump, or roadkill. Same logic also applies to anyone who rides a bike in Vancouver between, say, October and March.</p>
<p>El wire hack night isn't a formal workshop, but there will be experienced el wirers on hand to help with any questions, plus an assortment of el wire projects for inspiration. If you already have something el wired to show off, by all means bring it. Other shiny and blinky things are also welcome, even if they're not el wire based. </p>
<p>BYO el wire, drivers, and any other paraphernalia your project requires. You can also bring just yourself if you're interested in seeing what others are up to.</p>
<p>El wire and drivers can be found at Lee's Electronics on Main st, or bought from coolneon.com (based in California, but ship to Canada.
Very knowledgeable and great to deal with) or seattlelumin.com (based in Seattle, ships to Canada. Haven't dealt with them personally.) </p>

</header>
<p class='description'>Interested in making your own battery-powered portable charger for USB devices? VHS has put together kits using Lada Ada's popular Minty Boost design and will have them available for next Tuesday's kit night (Aug 10th, 2010 - 7 PM). The kit is novice level, so if you have any soldering experience at all it won't be difficult (and if you don't have any experience we can, time permitting, give you a quick run through on basic soldering). </p>
<p>The charger you will build is housed in an included Altoids container and uses two AA batteries. The Minty Boost circuit is V2 and won't work with very recent Apple devices, so check the compatibility page if you are in doubt (<a href='http://www.ladyada.net/make/mintyboost/compat2.html'>http://www.ladyada.net/make/mintyboost/compat2.html</a>).</p>
<p>Kits are $20 for members and $25 for non-members. For more information about the kit visit: <a href='http://www.ladyada.net/make/mintyboost/'>http://www.ladyada.net/make/mintyboost/</a></p>

No, not the kind that helps with digestion. The kind that you
