HELP COMPILE THE HACKER CALENDAR

Newsheader

This looks like a great project…2600 NEWS: HELP US COMPILE THE HACKER CALENDAR

We’ve got another fun project we hope you’ll like. For the year 2012 – possibly the last year of the world – we’re putting together a special hacker wall calendar, filled with all sorts of awesome pictures of technology compiled by our team of photographers. Old and new tech will be represented, large and small, you name it. We’ve been gathering the best shots for quite some time.

But the pictures are only one part of the hacker calendar. What we’re also doing is compiling historical dates that will be marked throughout its pages. While most calendars are content to let you know only when certain major holidays occur, we intend to provide as complete a guide to milestones in the hacker world as humanly possible.

For example:
March 3, 1885 – American Telephone & Telegraph founded
June 3, 1983 – “War Games” released
September 27, 1983 – The GNU Project announced by Richard Stallman
November 17, 1985 – The first issue of “Phrack” released
July 10, 1990 – Electronic Frontier Foundation started
January 21, 2000 – Kevin Mitnick released after five years in captivity
June 2, 2011 – Hacker group LulzSec reveals massive Sony security breach

You get the idea. Anything and everything of interest to the hacker world is fair game as long as it has a specific date. And this is where you can participate.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
