Toronto Dorkbot Franchise and Hacktivism

BoingBoing pointed me today towards dorkbot! – People doing strange things with electricity. They have a Toronto Franchise , and this mash up of technology and art is pretty strange but cool. I am going to have to check it out.

The next dorkbot! Toronto is happening Thursday, January 26, 7pm at InterAccess Electronic Media Arts Centre . I might have to just check it out. Past presentations include TorCamp attendee Jonathan Resnick with the MyDokiDoki project, which he demoed at our first DemoCamp (the next one is January 24 , 6:30pm at the RadiantCore offices).

Tonight is the first Hacktivism, a free demonstration, at the YYZ Artist Outlet , 401 Richmond Street West, Suit 140 .

  • Jan 18 – Open Source and Democracy – Find out how open-source technologies provide new tools for artists
  • Feb 1 – Cell Phone Hack – Turn your cellphone in to a megaphone and hit the streets!
  • Feb 15 – Toy Hack – Dissect common mechanical toys for new electronic creations
  • Mar 1 – Video Game Hack (held at InterAccess ) – Liberate your video games for new purposes

Hope to see you there.

  3. <p>Also agent provocateur, impressario, general troublemaker and cruise director (like julie without the scarf). Reading David's site is like having a personal social director.</p>
