Croatian hacker sleep-away camp


Croatian hackerspace Zagreb Makerspace is throwing a sleepaway camp in Deringaj – take a look at the map here, there’s a castle (pictured right) and a river, it looks gorgeous! If you’re in Croatia between August 19 and 24, you should absolutely go and report back.

From Deborah Hustic, who you can email for details here:

If anyone is having currently a trip or holidays on the Croatian coast, pls, stop-by, you need a tent, sleeping bad, maybe a solar shower, but there is a river near, and some combination of clothing for hot days and slightly coldish nights. For food we organized a kiosk / mini bar with BIO food with prices around 5, 6 euros for full lunch and cheaper snacks.

White paper stirs up the list


Some biohackers at Camp Pixelache in Helinski had a long chat about creative commons as it applies to biology, and write a white paper about it. You can read the abstract here, and the rest is on GitHub.

Over the past few days there’s been a pretty intense discussion about it, so if you have anything to say, head on over and join the party.

Reminder about Ask a Biosafety Expert

Our inbox at ABSE is looking a little quiet, so here’s a reminder: any pressing questions you have about lab safety, please drop us a line!

That’s it everybody – I’m off to the mountains for the weekend, but I’ll see you in a few days!
