The Linux Users' Group of Davis (LUGOD) will be holding the following meeting:
October 17, 2011
7:00pm - 9:00pm
"Hacking Space Exploration and Science"
Ariel Waldman, interaction designer and founder, Spacehack.org
This will be a fairly informal/personal talk about what it means
to hack space exploration and science, why it's important, the
motivations behind it, and what it means for the future of science.
Spacehack.org is a directory of ways to participate in space
exploration, interact + connect with the space community and
encourage citizen science. Its conception was influenced by the NASA
Authorization Act of 2008.
The mission of Science Hack Day is to get excited and make things
with science! A Hack Day is a 48-hour-all-night event that brings
together designers, developers, scientists and other geeks in the
same physical space for a brief but intense period of collaboration,
hacking, and building 'cool stuff.'
About the Speaker:
Ariel Waldman is the creator of Science Hack Day SF and Spacehack.org.
She also is an interaction designer and Research Affiliate at the
Institute For The Future. Previously, she worked at NASA's CoLab
program whose mission was to connect communities inside and outside
NASA to collaborate.

Yolo County Public Library, Davis Branch (Mary L. Stephens Branch)
