Official, Semi-Official, one-off and other events at the Noisebridge space.
Not all events make it onto this calendar. Many events only make it to the Discussion or Announcements mailing lists, IRC or in person at Tuesday meetings. Best of all, Noisebridge is about people getting together at the space in San Francisco to do stuff... like in person. Some events just happen. Pay attention!
If you'd like to host an event yourself, we have advice on hosting an event at Noisebridge.
To post Google Calendar entries for your event, contact a Noisebridge member for access.
(Wouldn't it be great if there were a gCal mediawiki plugin so crossposting wasn't needed? Do you know of a good one? Help us!) <- working on this, need to upgrade Mediawiki in order to use some plugins.
Upcoming Events edit
- May 13th, 19:00 - Build a Contact Mic with Hackerspace Rock Band CMKT 4. All the way from Chicago, the band is eager to teach you the art of contact microphone building. Here is our standard class description:
- At our workshops, everyone who buys a kit ($15 per workshop attendee, includes a kit; $10 apiece for additional kits) will learn to solder. They will also work with hot glue, zip ties, shielded cable, a piezo electric disc and recycled bottle-caps to make a fully functioning Bottle-Cap Contact Microphone. These microphones pick up physical vibrations and transduce the vibrations into an electrical audio signal. Students are encouraged to bring instruments and found objects to listen to through the microphones.
- There is a dry-time involved in the materials we use, however, during that time, we will put on a brief performance for the attendees. For the performance, we will require the use of a PA.
- You can hear more about us at http://www.facebook.com/cmkt4 http://www.myspace.com/cmkt4 and http://cmkt4.bandcamp.com/, we have performance videos at http://www.vimeo.com/channels/cremedementia. Follow us on twitter @cmkt4.
- May 18th, 6:30-9pm - Gephi Workshop in the main area. Gephi is an open-source software for network visualization and analysis.
