Boing Boing: Ingenuity, our two day real world extravaganza, is upon us. Scientists. Artists. Makers. Writers. Designers. Musicians. Eccentrics. Boing Boing: Ingenuity brings our site off the screen and into the physical realm for the very first time. The experience begins on Saturday August 17th with a 12-hour marathon hack day at TechShop San Francisco and continues Sunday, August 18th with fascinating presentations, astounding performances, and living curiosities on the stage of a former Masonic Lodge. You can see the line-up here. It's vaudeville for Happy Mutants! For those who won't be there in person, don't fret. We will be documenting the entire weekend to share here in the coming weeks. Of course, if you yearn for a real-time window onto this unprecedented celebration of cleverness, curiosity, and wonder, we urge you to tune in (and turn on) to our social media channels -- @boingboing on Twitter and @boingboing on Instagram -- for on-the-scene snaps, videos, quotes, and links galore. The hashtag is #bbingenuity. Get illuminated.
