Posted by Squintz , 29 January 2009 · 178 views

Last week I went to a church in DC where the HacDC group is based. HacDC is an organization of like minded men and women who love science and technology. They love to build and play with robots, lasers, DNA and all kinds of cool stuff. There is a similar group in NY called NYResistor.

I have not thought of a cool name for the group I want to start. What I...
