Once again, I helped organize the Hackers On Planet Earth conference, July 13-15, 2012, in New York City. In addition to being active on the speaker selection panel, curating art exhibits, and helping re-plan conference space and admissions to accommodate both, I also emceed the chiptune concert (see Marjorie Becker’s great pictures) and coordinated it, bringing in artists from New York, Philadelphia, and Sweden. Oh — and I performed as well, and did lightweight work with wearable electronics.
Want to know why I’m involved with HOPE? I’ve written up some thoughts here.
