I'm the lady Mike was referring to, organising the Southbank Centre
weekend in August.
I popped into LHS a couple of weeks ago and was so inspired by what
was happening I'm hoping to join myself!
I've been reading your ideas of what could happen at the workshop,
they all sound brilliant. We could always ask members of the public to
bring old electronics appliances for a hackoff, or I'm sure I have a
few broken toasters/old computers I could bring!
Or if you want, people can bring a mixture of stuff and (re)create a
mini-LHS in the Festival Hall. Bring the game machine as well as do
hacking projects. Give people a taste of what happens at the LHS and
recruit a few people along the way!
We already have someone running a soldering workshop and 3D printing
that weekend, so you could use the 3D printer if you wanted to for a
To help me plan the weekend, could you confirm which day(s) you can
come down. At the moment we have events on both 13th & 14th August,
running from around 11am til 4pm. And let me know what sort of space/
equipment you need so I can then start the ball rolling my end to
source materials etc.
Thanks guys, can't wait. Jing
