DorkbotSF is a arts and tech talks meetup that was the birthplace of the group that spawned Noisebridge.

Dorkbot-sf is a spinoff of dorkbot-nyc which is "a monthly meeting of artists (sound/image/movement/whatever), designers, engineers, students and other interested parties from the new york area who are involved in the creation of electronic art (in the broadest sense of the term.)"

The purpose of dorkbot is to:

  • give artists/programmers/engineers an opportunity for informal peer review
  • establish a forum for the pressentation of new art works/technology/software/hardware
  • help establish relationships and foster collaboration between people with various backgrounds and interests
  • give us all a chance to see the cool things that our neighbors are working on
  • WEBSITE: http://dorkbotsf.org
  • SPEAKING: If you would like to speak at a future dorkbotSF contact Karen Marcelo (dorkbotsf.org [@] dorkbot [.] org).

Dorkbot TODO[edit]

  • Invite Dorkbot to host at Noisebridge again maybe for NB15
  • Get Dorkbotsf.org to support HTTPS
  • Get Dorkbotsf.org google calendar to work instead of showing an auth errror.

Past Dorkbots Noisebridge Participated In[edit]

Dorkbot Mar 01 2017 @ Noisebridge[edit]

Three 20-minute presentations exploring intersections of art and technology, in a social gathering of dorks, nerds, and geeks.

All are welcome!

When: Mar 01 2017, 7:00pm social hour, 8:00pm presentations
Where: Noisebridge


Presentations:

  • Mark Meadows - Bad Bot. Good Bot.

You're authenticated on Facebook but chatbots aren't. Bots can spam, scam, phish, spoof, and abuse more effectively than people. What we need are license plates for these things.

  • Kal Spelletich and Mitch Altman - Harvesting Brain DATA for Robotic Mayhem and Enlightenment

Volunteers will wear EEG brainwave-monitoring helmets. One participant controls one robot arm. The other participant controls the other robot. Can they make the robot arms kiss? If they do, everyone is treated to a show of lights!

  • Terbo Ted - A Reading from D: Based on A True Story

An Artificial Intelligence attains self awareness and becomes obsessed with a disgraced tech journalist who had previously coded computer screen savers for a living. The two fall deeply in love.
