Wrapping up another epic year of Science Hack Day SF!

Science Hack Day San Francisco 2015Demos begin at Science Hack Day SF 2015!
Science Hack Day, how I love thee – let me count the ways. This was the largest Science Hack Day yet with 225 attendees! We also had our largest percentage of new-to-SHD participants this year, underlining that after six annual events we are far from slowing down the science hacking. It's still the overwhelming, quirky, fascinating, humble and delightful event it was when we started it back in 2010 and it is truly wonderful to watch each new year of science hackers run with it. The best part of Science Hack Day is that I can never come even close to predicting what people will create. I love that. Science Hack Day is inherently about the unexpected, the serendipitous, the unlikely and the unexplored.

Thanks for attending the 5th annual Science Hack Day in San Francisco!

Demos begin!Demos begin at Science Hack Day SF 2014! I'm still in the afterglow of Science Hack Day. This year was our 5th Science Hack Day in San Francisco - and the 40th worldwide! It has been heartwarming to see the community grow with each event. Two of my favorite things to see (as an organizer) each year are: 1) watching people reconnect with friends and collaborators they've made at the event - the hugs and excitement are really sweet, and, 2) seeing a large group of hands go up when we ask the audience if it's their first time at the event. I'm really proud to run an ongoing event that has an amazing group of "regulars" as well as bright-eyed "newbies" collaborating with one another. Read more...
