Gansevoort Rooftop and Adidas Party Giftbags

I’ve spent the past few days neglecting your pickled livers with posts about filmmakers, workshops, and literary panels so I guess I need to reel some of you back with a bucket of chum and a dash of glam.  The problem is, I’m finding free a little hard to track

Make a Fuggin’ Remote Control Plane for $100

A few weeks ago I went to Dorkbot and it was AMAZING.  Sometime in between Revenge of the Nerds and now these guys have really improved their social capital.  Must have something to do with computers.  There were three presentations from five dorks, who per event requirements  were “doing strange
