I still have to go buy some chips at MBTronics, I don't think I will have the time tomorrow, expect if I find someone who might be available to go there for me.
Why don't you bring it over tomorrow so we all can have a look?

/tmp/lab announces the second Hacker Space Festival. Please submit your talks proposals. The Hacker Space Festival will happen at the end of June at /tmp/lab, in Paris. HSB will send a delegation there, we are organising a car pool probably.
======================================================================== /tmp/lab announces the second Hacker Space Festival (Paris, 26-30 June 2009) ======================================================================== Hacker Space Festival 2009 | Call For Proposals In 2008, we organized HSF on the spot, as an ad-hoc meeting for hackerspaces-related networks, technical and artistic research emerging from them and social questionning arising from them. This sudden experiment proved to be a huge success, as much as on the self-organizing level as on the participants and meetings quality, as well as the emotionally-charged ambient, the kind of which you make fond memories. The 2008 edition generated a strong emulation in France, from its historical role as the first official hack meeting there, and in Europe with the subsequent creation of the Hacker Space Brussels, the rapprochement with The Fiber in Amsterdam and the hackerspaces.org network. Initiatives of hackerspace openings in Grenoble or Lille, or the upcoming FrHack conference show an actual enthusiasm in the French hackers community that was doomed to the "underground" not so long ago. We salute these initiatives and their diversity! Soon enough, we wanted to reiterate the HSF experience : however, it was out of the question to institutionalize this temporary autonomous zone, nor make it an ersatz of the previous edition, nor even to wrap it into an "elite" or "underground" aura. On the opposite, we ardently desire; and especially to explore further, in all directions some lesser known domains (see below) et foster meeting and sharing around experiences at the confluence of art, technology and politics. The world financial crisis, the decay of democracy in Europe, the obscurantism, paranoia and lack of culture presiding over legislation (Internet and Reaction... Err... Creation Law) seem a fertile environment for the sensible development of new (social...) life forms. Quick! Let's rest for a few days in jubilation and ecstasy to take a deep breathe of freedom under the indelicate smells of the medicine factory nearby! For if the public space is shrinking to oblivion, where any side-step becomes suspect, and that, from an early age (deviant behavior detection in nursery school), where moving without a mobile phone becomes suspect (hello you Julien Coupat, a French political prisoner in France!), there's a domain that the Leviathan would have a lot of trouble to contain, and for a reason: that of sensitivity. Even the desperate attempts of the State to block the free and premonitory expression of sense (hello you Demeure du Chaos!) cannot do anything against a loud laughter or a knowing glance, a sensual kiss or an explosion of colors. Sensitivity, we could say, is what is left to a human being when she has nothing anymore, and differenciates her from the body corporate or the institution, that are, in essence, devoid of it. Therefore, Art definitely remains the public space to share between humans, and only between us. And if it the last one to share, we propose to explore it and take it over during the upcoming edition of the Hacker Space Festival, from the 26th to 30th of June, 2009 at Vitry sur Seine. ======================================================================== Keynote Speakers: Sergey Grim and Larry Fake with Eric Schmoudt Groogle Summer of Crode, Survivor style "VLC, I vote against you because you really fucked up when..." ======================================================================== == W A N T E D ========================================================= Focus on solutions rather than problems. * The Final (Hardware) Frontier: Open FPGA Cores, Reverse Engineering * Designer Religions and Creative Beliefs Systems * WiFiDoors & WiFi System-on-Chip controllers firmware hacking, infection & backdooring * Telecom Core Network Equipment Reverse Engineering: MSC, STP, Switches, ... * Algebraic Attacks and Modern Cryptography Attacks * Autonomous, Parasitic and Viral Drones * Enhanced or Infected Reality Swarms * Auto-Builders / Self-Fabrication * Embedded OS breakins stories & recipies * Actualization rather than mere concepts * FPGA & ASIC hacking / backdooring * Cloud+Privacy+Open Source: O Brave New World? * Explosion-Proof clothing * Radio Appz & Hackz: Mesh @ RF Layer 1-3 * Database & Privacy * Problematic & Ethical Open Source/Content Licenses * Institutional Relationships: Lobbying or Licking? * Non Lethal Protection (anti-taser vests?) * Survival in the Age of the Ministry of Immigration and National Identity * Mental asylum improvised visit * Open Source Legacy Media(TM) Production Solutions (TV, Radio, Press, DRM) * Gas Sensors & Environmental Benchmarking * Building Hackerspaces Without Money * Milsatcomm hacking: Military satellites shots, broken birds in the sky * Academics and Hackers * Organics and Fermentation * Clean Food in Tainted Environment * Low Impact Energy & Recycling * Media Sandwich: layers of crap makes good food? * Deconstructing Carla Sarkozy * Knitting DIY Factory (jazzy, eh?) * Signs of life among industrial wasteland * Hallucinogenic & Computing: Can you Code on Acid? * Mesh Networking (Wireless BattleMesh Royal!) * Legal Sabotage: When Democracy Needs You And anything that does not fit. ======================================================================== == P R O P O S E ======================================================= Send you contributions to HSF2009-CFP@lists.tmplab.org + Type of the proposal: 1. conference (45min. presentation + 10min. for questions) 2. workshop / demo (30min. à 2 heures) 3. installation / performance (music, plastic, sound, video) Lightning talks can be proposed and organized until the last moment, according to available space and schedule, in the form of BarCamps or Blitz Conferences. + Required Information: * Title of the presentation * Type (see above) * Language : French or English * Name of speaker(s) * Affiliation (organization / company) * Short biography * Abstract (5 to 10 lines) * Topics / Keywords * Includes a demo?

Nothing is better then Facebook to give your privacy away to a large american corporation so that the FBI can profile you. Join the HSB Facebook group and give your privacy away now! Several people already successfully joined.
The link to the Facebook group is here. I wonder if there is kind of API that could be used to synchronise events between Facebook and Google calendar, and exporting everything in iCal and RSS feed.
Just created this new blog using the FrontForum module in order to have a nice way to put new articles for HSB. If you want to post a new article, feel free to submit a good article using the submit form. You can also reply to this thread.
this is a test to see if the comment goes in the backup
