Prepare your Warmachine!

January 24th, 2011 Comments off

Hive13 is having a Sumobot Competition on April 16th from 6pm-9pm!  Everyone is welcome to either compete or just show up to watch.  We will be teaming up with our friends at Cincinnati Fitness Boxing so we can bring you the sumobot tournament from inside a real boxing ring!!  (Cincy was out of spare sumo rings, sue me)

Hive13 Sumobot WarmachinesFor more information visit the wiki page.  We want to give all the competitors plenty of notice so they can have plenty of time to test out their crazy ideas.  If you want to compete use the signup form at http://s.hive13.org/sumobot

We are still looking for donations that we can use for prizes for this competition.  Email craig@hive13.org if you or your company has something they can contribute.

Hive13 Locksport Workshop

December 6th, 2010 Comments off

Come join us as we start up our (hopefully) regular Locksport workshops.  Locksport is competitive lockpicking.  From the Locksport International website:

“Locksport features a need for knowledge and understanding of how the things around us work.  When you consider a lock mechanism, you will need snap judgment when considering the lock’s difficulty, the best tool, and the most viable approach. When it comes time to explore the innerworkings of the mechanism, it is only the slightest of touches and the most deft moves that will guide you.”

As a special honor we will have Schuyler Towne of Open Locksport fame kick off our first Locksport workshop!  At The Next HOPE conference in NYC, NY in 2010, Towne won the Locksport Wizard contest.  He also had the now famous kickstarter project when trying to raise $6,000 to create a set of custom open lockpicks he ended up raising over $87,000.

When: December 14th, starting around 7pm

If you have a set of lockpicks you will need to bring them.  There will be some to share.  We will not have any lockpicks available for sale either.

Android Dev 101 Sold Out

December 5th, 2010 Comments off

Android Development 101 class has been sold out.  I’ve had some requests to be put on a backup list if anybody drops out of class.  Eventbrite will probably show an opening if somebody drops out but we are currently NOT doing an official wait list.  We are however going to have another android development class sometime early 2011 for those who can not attend this class.  We know the class size is small but we feel that this is a good thing…we just need to have more classes :)

For those who are going to be attending this class, emails will go out as we get closer the the date of the class.  Teaser:  You will be making an app that you can use while drunk to assist in drunk txting your friends … hehe

New Membership Tiers!

November 24th, 2010 Comments off

New Membership TiersAt the Hive we are really excited to announce new membership tiers!  We are now offering $50 a month for FULL membership to new members.  This is the same level of access as our old $100 tier, which gives you a door code, 24/7 access to the space, lockers, discounts on classes and the admiration of your peers!

We are having a membership drive to get 15 new members.  This number is important because with 15 new members we can ensure that the overall membership to the space can be lowered to $50/mo for good and still pay our rent!  There is also a little red meter under the subscribe  button on the main page so everybody can follow along on the progress of the drive.

To become a full member goto the main page at www.hive13.org and click “Subscribe” on the right hand side.

A little lower down the the sidebar is another new tier called the Elite tier.  This is a donation tier.  If you can’t make it to the Hive but you still want to support us, then this is the tier for you!  Members will also get discounts on upcoming classes at the hive!  If you are a full time student then you can sign up for the Elite tier, fill out the student application (still to come) and you can be a full member as well!

Please spread this message around.  We need to make this membership drive a success!

Reverse Engineering Workshop

October 26th, 2010 Comments off

Hive 13 member Steve Lackermann will be hosting a Reverse Engineering workshop Wednesday, Nov. 17th at 7:00 PM. Bring your laptop (Linux or Windows, it doesn’t matter, we’ll provide the software) and participate in this hands-on workshop where you’ll reverse engineer your very first program!  Even if you have no programming or reverse engineering experience, by the end of this workshop you will understand the basics of reverse engineering and be able to begin teaching yourself.  This workshop will be completely free.

If you can bring an empty flash drive (at least 2 GB), please do so. Please direct any questions to slackermann@hive13.org

For some idea of what we’ll be doing, here’s a tutorial on YouTube:
