Sorry for the late announcement. We will be meeting this Friday, May 3rd, at 7PM. May 3rd is the annual International Day Against DRM. So I thought we could discuss Digital Rights Management systems and I can show my old presentation. As always, if you have something you want to present, or a demo you want to give, you are encouraged to do so.

We will be meeting at the Hive13 hacker space in Camp Washington, 2929 Spring Grove Ave at 7pm. Maps and other details about the location can be found here. See you there!

Tuesday May 14, 2013 at Hive13 – DIY CSI Forensics

April 28th, 2013 16 comments

Join us at Hive13 this Tuesday, May 14, at the 7:30 pm meeting for an informative look into Do-It-Yourself Crime-Scene-Investigation Forensics.

Member Brian Cochran (who is a Detective in the Boone County Sheriff’s Department assigned to crime scene investigation) will use material from the 40-hour course he teaches at the University of Tennessee’s National Forensic Academy.  Brian will perform live demonstrations of some of the coolest latent print development techniques; making finger prints appear on paper,  making them glow, and fun stuff like that.  The presentation will include a brief overview with slides showing real CSI jobs and case studies.  The case studies focus on the processes that are used and where the “maker” attitude was applied to bring the case to a successful conclusion.  The two case studies that will be presented are homicides.  Real crime scene photography and a limited number of postmortem examination photos will be shown.  It will not be anything different from what you would see on an episode of CSI or Dexter but these ARE real.  Both of these case study presentations have been shown to high school groups before, but this is an UP FRONT WARNING for those inclined to be squeamish.

Members, guests, first-time-walk-ins, and those interested in law enforcement and criminal investigations are welcome to come to hear this presentation.  Come to learn about this different kind of  (“making” the case) skill.  (Find Us)

The big day is upon us!

I will be arriving at the Hive around 1pm and I’ll bring a couple of versions of Fluxx (Regular, Zombie, and Pirate), Small World, and a couple of version of Ticket to Ride.

Bring your games and your friends to Hive13 Saturday afternoon and we’ll form groups to play games.

If you don’t have a game to bring, come anyway and play one of the multitude that will be on hand.

If you don’t want to play games, come anyway, because if you don’t play games, the terrorists win.

Hive13 is located at 2929 Spring Grove Ave. in Camp Washington. You can find maps and other details here.

HACK THIS! – Personal Human Performance Enhancement and Neuro Hacking at HIVE13 this Tuesday Mar. 26, 2013

March 26th, 2013 15 comments

What would be the ultimate HACK?  How about the human brain?  Can you really think faster using a few simple components and a 9v battery?  Want to learn what others are doing?  Want to try it (on) yourself?

Learn about the approaches to lifehack your way to better mental and physical performance.  Neuro equipment can be built by hackers on a reasonable budget to do everything from brain imaging to changing actual neuronal functioning.

Join us at HIVE13 this Tuesday, March 26, at the 7:30 pm meeting for a stimulating intellectual enlightenment.

Did you meet that interesting guy, Judas (JohnM) that has been hanging out at the HIVE this past month?  Did you know he was  on sabbatical from that other hackerspace out of San Francisco called NoiseBridge?  Did you wonder what kind of circuit boards he’s been making during his time here?  Well, he’s going to give us a special show-and-tell before he leaves us to go back home.

Members, guests, and interested first-time-walk-ins are welcome to come to hear him pontificate on personal human performance enhancement and neuro hacking.  Come to learn this new left coast hacking skill.  It could be a mind-blowing phrenological experience.  (Find Us)

Tuesday Mar. 12, 2013 at HIVE13 – Easy Bake Surface Mount Soldering!

February 25th, 2013 2 comments

OK, so you’ve gotten a taste for Raspberry Pi at HIVE13.  Now what?  Well, anybody can buy a pie.  HIVE13 is all about making things.  So how about learning how to bake your own flavor of custom circuit board pie, from scratch?

Join us at the HIVE on March 12, 2013 when member and CTO DaveB will be the featured 2nd Tuesday speaker at the 7:30pm meeting.  His talk/class will be about the process of designing and making your own small-scale batch of custom printed circuit boards and focus on hands-on demonstrations of surface mount PCB assembly techniques.  If you’ve ever wanted to work with surface mount electronics but didn’t know how, this is your chance to learn.

The class will start with an introduction to SMT hand-soldering technique aimed at beginners.  Next will be a demonstration of how to use the makerbot and laser cutter available at the space to create a solder paste stencil and simple frame.  These will be used to prep boards with solder paste and components followed finally by a demo of reflow soldering using the DIY reflow oven recently completed by DaveB.  If you’re interested in having a board of your own to try to put together, there will be an extremely limited number of kits (probably FTDI USB->TTL converters) available for purchase on a first-come first-serve basis.

Members, guests, and interested first-time-walk-ins are welcome to come to see and learn a new maker skill.  The HIVE is the place to be a maker and work on sweet collaborative projects.  (Find Us)
