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.

3D printing has been one of those “next big thing” innovations among early adopters and the tech circle in-crowd for a few years now. However, the prospect of creating your own three-dimensional objects is still in its relative infancy with the general public. While the idea itself is fascinating to most, high prices and the […]
White hat hackers get paid to find holes in their own employers’ online systems, and plug those holes before they become serious security risks. It’s a job that pays handsomely…mostly because few job candidates, even experienced IT professionals, have the skills to scamper over firewalls and infiltrate the deepest recesses of a battle-tested network. But […]
