At the CSUN Oviatt Library

The organizers will provide a list of suggested topics and some research materials, but participants are encouraged to write and edit articles on any subjects of their choosing. All levels are welcome, so those new to Wikipedia can learn the basics and begin editing. We will provide a short training session at 2:30 pm and assistance from experienced editors will be available throughout the day. We ask that participants bring their own laptops and chargers if possible. This event is free and all are welcome.

July 8th 2 pm – 5 pm

Please be sure to create a Wikipedia account prior to arriving at the event:

DEFCON Biohacker Village

Somehow I was lucky enough to get involved in the group planning a biohacker villege for next year’s Defcon. I’d like to be able to present something but feel way out of my league so I might just help with all the projects already going on. Some of the ideas proposed so far are:

  • DNA transformation, such as making E coli red
  • make your own liposomes
  • self-hypnosis
  • bio engeneered beer

LA Makerspace

In addition the LA Makerspace recently started a citizen science program.

The main projects there are:
