Chris, John and Dan are working on a laser-light display, which should be happening in the next few weeks.

CTF updates: We’ve talked to the PTHC (Northeastern Security Club, don’t Google though) people, and they’re going to help us make challenges and stuff. We’ve roughly pencilled in a date for early June, but that’s very preliminary. If you want to help create or test challenges, come talk to Allan, Jeff Crowell or me.

When is Hardware Freedom Day?
April 20, 2013, exact times to be announced.
What is Hardware Freedom Day?
Hardware Freedom Day is a worldwide celebration of Open Hardware. Initiated in 2012 by the same organization behind Software Freedom Day it aims at educating the worldwide public about the benefits of using and promoting Open Hardware. It also provides an international day to serve as a platform to raise awareness to existing projects and communities around the world as well as encourage participation in local Open Hardware initiatives. The non-profit organization Digital Freedom Foundation coordinates HFD at a global level, providing support, giveaways and a point of collaboration, but volunteer teams around the world organize the local HFD events to impact their own communities.

How Will We Contribute?
We will hold a hackathon in the traditional BUILDS style, except with a focus on a topic related to hardware in some way.
