John English and Dan Davis-Boxleitner (and possibly others) from the Boulder hackerspace/makerspace Solid State Depot will be presenting at Boulder Ignite 13. The presentation is called “Fight Consumerism by Building It Your Damn Self” and will discuss the history and present day hackerspace experience as well as some interesting projects that hackerspaces around the world are working on. We will have 5 minutes to show 20 slides and entertain a crowd of Boulder’s finest geeks. For more information check out the Boulder Ignite event page.
The tickets are $10 and sell out pretty quickly, so definitely get ‘em while they’re hot.
