This past week I had the opportunity to attend FOO Camp in Sabastapol, CA. It was an amazing experience and I’m still trying to digest it all. Sessions I attended included ‘Hacking Bacteria’, ‘The History of Internet Art’, ‘Better Data Visualizations’, ‘Open Source Hardware’ and on and on… I also gave a talk on ‘The Future of News’ with John Markoff, Steven Levy and Monica Guzman and I participated in a 5 min Ignite talk titled ‘NYCResistor and Hardware Hacking in Brookland’. I could go on and on about the prodigious experiences at FOO Camp (not to mention playing werewolf until 4:30 am.) but one versatility it really affirmed for me is that the individuals that make up this global hacker, tinker and open source world are a truly altruistic, talented and generous community.

    Hey Nick,

    Not sure I’ve digested it all either. What an intense conference. Thanks for your insights – hope we meet again :-)
