Toorcamp was hosted at a decommissioned Titan missile silo site. Four stories underground, 55 degrees, and very cold war. We had to wear hard hats and go down in groups. It was an interesting place to be and photograph.
Toorcamp was described as a surprise Burning Man. It was hot, dusty, and the wind did some awesome things. A small community of hackers and snarky bastards was formed and we partied like no tomorrow.
While biking from Bart to Maker Faire, Jonathan and I found a shop selling piñatas. The logical thing to do was to grab one that loked like Mario and use it as a photo prop at the Noisebridge booth. Hilarity.
Packing my bags for another bike trip. This time I’m heading out on a 3 – 4 day trek to a decommissioned Titan missile silo 230 miles East of Seattle for the Toorcamp hacker conference. The whole thing will last through the forth of July weekend, camping with the Noisebridge contingency, and I think I’ll be staying a bit after to help clean up.
I’m set to leave in a hand full of hours with two other Seattle locals. I’ve setup my iPhone to keep track of where I am and post the information online. You can check my progress on my new spiffy Locate page.
Looking forward to some interesting interactions at Toor.
Brute force attack.
The space is open, if you feel like San Francisco doesn’t have a place where you can show up, meet cool people, and hack on things. You might want to check out Noisebridge.
