Impressions from the Maker Faire, May 3&4, 2008, San Mateo

The Maker Faire is an event that occurs every six month and alternate between San Mateo and Austin, Texas. It is organized by the famous Make magazine http://makezine.com/ . The goal of the event is to be a mix of Arts, Crafts, Engineering, Green Tech, Music, Science & Technology.

Hacker Space Fest Call For Papers (CFP) – June 2008

What would the Internet look like without hackers? What would computing look like without free and open source software? What would the culture look like with DRM and closed media channels everywhere? Where do art and technology merge? Would Gilbert Simondon be happy if he were alive today? Many questions will be debated during the first Hacker Space Fest from the 16th to the 22nd June 2008 near Paris, in

OLPC Sugar on EEE pc with bootable USB key and OLPC XO emulation fun

Before jumping into “did this, done that”, current advances in SD card and USB memory sticks sizes, bootable distribution and virtualization take computing to a different level. Remember when you use to insert a

An astronomical experiment

In the dark quietness of the lab, using a special lens shaped like the leg of a wine drinking glass, a light source, and a piece of cardboard, we saw the Einstein Ring today. In space, these rings and associated shapes appear when light from distant sources is bent by a massive galaxy or group thereof. Our lens bends light exactly the same way a black hole weighting 75% of

EEE boots on USB & SD card

Here is a Tutorial on how to boot your EEE pc with USB-key or SD-card that I wrote coming back from Indonesia. The cool thing is that you can have as many 1Gb or 2Gb SD-cards for as many distribution you need to work with. Let’s say you need to use Debian for some compile jobs, Nexenta for some Open Solaris testing and Backtrack3 for some security/hacking jobs? Easy, you

SkyLight

One of our first project is to get proper sunlight into the basement. We have thus started to work on a SkyLight that will provide us with light similar to the sun (below this thick concrete shelter). Currently our plans are to use 6000K fluorescent tubes that provides “Daylight” glare, combined with colored lights that will restore a warm atmosphere.

Setup

/tmp/lab is physically and virtually started. With over 100 square meters in the suburb of Paris and this server, we’re pleased to open the first hacker space in Paris area. Please understand hack as creative use of technology, not computer intrusion, and stay tuned for more infos. /tmp/lab is the first hacklab setup by the lelab.fr initiative. We hope to create and disseminate much more technology and creativity places in
