Hack Session(s)

Just wanted to get the wheels spinning on some possibilities for the hack sessions. It looks like we’ve got a big chunk of time plus some shorter sessions if there’s interest. I’m really in love with the idea of making something during the camp but don’t know how many people will be into that.

But what to work on… We could follow up the Omeka tutorial with some Omeka development? Build a quick and dirty mobile app? Write a twitter bot? Map some data?

I'm a multimedia consultant with a 15 year history of working with university libraries and museums on projects that integrate technology into scholarly activities. I've also collaborated on various media art projects dealing with labor, community, and place. Slavoj Žižek. In 2002 I sealed an envelope with some writings to myself that was not to be opened until ten years later, in 2012. It dealt with the purported end times, I believe. I can't remember what's in it but it's labeled with the cryptic phrase "Lacanian Thought Diagram" or something similar, which is a reference to Žižek's work on the imaginary. I'll open it sometime this year. Galaga - At this point, numerical scores are irrelevant in the game of Galaga. The level flips over at 255 anyway. It is about paying a sacrificial coin to keep your old gods alive from the ancient arcade days of yore.

    I co-presented a workshop on mobile web design (jQuery) a few weeks back. If people are interested in doing a quick and dirty mobile web app, all they need to know is a little HTML. It might fit well with your hack session idea.

    That’s sort of what I was thinking — use Sencha Touch or something similar.

  3. I would be keen to learn from/participate in something like this!
