Ariel Waldman – spacehack.org: a directory of ways to participate in space exploration
Ariel Waldman has just finished her TV spot on the SyFy channel showing how Spacehack.org allows anyone to hack into space exploration – she’ll talk about bringing together scientists, technologists, designers and people with good ideas to see what they can create in one weekend. She is the creator of Science Hack Day SF and also the coordinator for Science Hack Days around the world, an interaction designer, and a research affiliate with Institute For The Future.
Nicholas Fitzroy-Dale – biohacking at the London Hackspace
Nicholas Fitzroy-Dale has a doctorate in computer programming with a special interest in performance optimisation, embedded systems, and mobile devices – but he also helped develop the the nascent field of amateur biology at the London Hackspace. His online journal moves between subjects like functional programming and the misshapen architecture of the human ear. He’ll talk about biohacking, the intentions and possible outcomes.
