Just joined to say a word about Hawaii Techworks. There are some members here in other groups. Techworks is more of a maker/dev space than a hackerspace. It's still starting up but there is a facility now at Rainbow falls. It is like a gym membership which exercises the brain rather than the muscles. It is also set up more like a farmer's market, so its like renting a table at a farmer's market, set up whatever you want. If a member wants a hacking space, it is more of a coder environment than a hardware hackerspace. Also, it has a new website address: http://www.hawaiitechworks.com
They're already up and running, or at least hosting events (the space/lab may still be coming together). There's an EasyBotics workshop next week, for example.http://easthawaii.org/hawaiitechworks/
Has anyone here heard of Hawaii Tech Works? They're based in Hilo, and apparently are just starting up. I'm looking forward to HTW opening.
Hacker? Uncle Sam Wants You!!
WASHINGTON, Aug 2 (Reuters) - The National Security Agency has a challenge for hackers who think they're hot stuff: prove it by working on the "hardest problems on Earth."
Computer hacker skills are in great demand in the U.S. government to fight the cyber wars that pose a growing national security threat -- and they are in short supply.
For that very reason an alphabet soup of federal agencies -- DOD, DHS, NASA, NSA ..... -- are all descending on Las Vegas this week for DefCON, an annual hacker convention where the $150 entrance fee is cash only -- no registration, no credit cards, no names taken. Attendance is expected to top 10,000.
