Boulder Ignite 13 – We’ll Be There

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.

Boulder Ignite Homepage
“Ignite Boulder is a night of presentations with a twist. Presenting on a subject of their choice, speakers have exactly 5 minutes to teach something, enlighten us, or simply inspire — backed by 20 slides auto-advancing every 15 seconds. Quick, fun, and smart: we sell out the largest venues in Boulder.”

Solid State DepotWelcome to the home of the Solid State Depot – Boulder’s very own Hackerspace/Makerspace. We are a group of like-minded individuals intent on destroying the world.. wait, I mean.. Intent on working together to inspire and enjoy the love of doing things by hand! We meet on a weekly basis in the Boulder, CO area in order to gather our forces so that one day (in the near future) we can expand into a space of our own!

We are currently hunting for an affordable space to build our workshop.
