Registration for Science Hack Day SF 2011 is open!

Update: We’re sold out!

We’ve opened up the first wave of tickets! It’s free to attend, but since we have a capacity of 200, we’ll want to ask about your interest in the event. Please only register if you are able to be hacking at Science Hack Day for both days (Nov 12+13). No drop-ins.

Here’s links to everything you need to know for now:
What is Science Hack Day anyway? Who is this for? (just to be clear: you don’t need to have experience with hacking or science-related things to attend – just an excitement for experimenting with it!)
