International Day Against DRM — May 4, 2012

April 27th, 2012 Comments off

On May 4th Hive13 together with 2600 will take part in International Day Against DRM.  On May 4th you are encouraged to spread word about the harms of DRM.  On Friday we will discuss how harmful DRM is as well as give demonstrations on how to liberate some of your digital goods from the DRM shackles.  We plan to focus primarily on ebooks just to keep the demos reasonably small.  If you have any experience with removing certain types of ebook protections please bring any tools or techniques with you for open discussion.  At this time we already have some volunteers that will demonstrate the remove of DRM for Adobe’s DRM plus I personally have a collection of scripts for: Mobipocket (.prc/.mobi), Kindle Mobipocket (.azw), Kindle Topaz (.tpz/.azw1), Kindle Print Replica (.azw4), Adobe ePub (.epub), Adobe PDF (.pdf), B&N ePub (.epub), B&N/Fictionwise eReader (.pdb).

Cinci 2600 starts at 7pm on May 4th

Free and open to the public!

If you want to volunteer for demos you can use the mailing list or our g+ page.

Bitcoin Local Exchange

May 25th, 2011 4 comments

We are starting to experiment more with Bitcoin at the space.  Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer digital currency system.  The first step for us is to setup a public local bitcoin exchange.  The purpose of a local exchange is to enable people to trade cash for bitcoins.  During the Tuesday meetings you can find somebody who has bitcoins and make an offer.  The idea for a local exchange is you can visible see the existence of the sellers bitcoins and there are no minimum amounts required to purchase/transaction fees.  For an idea of the estimated price per bitcoin check the going rate at Mt. Gox.

Depending on the popularity of bitcoins, you can expect to trade for services and things at the Hive.

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!

Hive13 Sketchduino Demo

August 19th, 2009 Comments off

Every week we get together to share project progress and deal with the business matters for the space.  Every so often a special guest shows up to demo something really cool that they have been working on.  That happened at the last meeting when Joe stopped by to show off his Sketchduino. He has taken an Etch-a-Sketch and paired it with an Arduino and a laptop to draw any image.  He gave a demo using one of our logos.  Check out the YouTube video of the demo!

Thanks Joe!  I can’t wait for the Party on the 29th!
