CopyCamp is an event about art, copyright, and the Net taking place here in Toronto in the last three days of September. We’re bringing together people from various worlds- around half will be artists, and the other half will be a mix of Free Software and Open Source advocates, government people, lawyers, journalist, academics, activists, and anyone else we think might contribute to a lively and useful conversation. The event draws heavily on emergent, participatory "unconference" models – lots of self-organizing, lots of conversation and cross-pollination between groups. We’re using ideas from Foo
Camp, Bar Camp, Penguin
Days and my own Trampoline Hall
Lecture Series, as well as including a couple of more conventional conference
For people who want to come: you can get into the event either by buying a ticket (recommended for suits) or applying to have your spot paid for (recommended for artists and other "creators"). We're trying to get the best participants we can, and we plan on giving away a lot of free spots to people who we really want there, especially people who are excited about contributing to the event.
For details, to register, or to apply for one of the free spots, see: www.copycamp.ca

MIT Tech Review's Antonio Regalado rounds up the year's stupidest, worst moments in tech, from the guy who created his own CRISPR-based gene therapy to beef up his muscles and injected it to Donald Trump's Twitter feed to the FCC's Net Neutrality catastrophe. Of course, Juicero rates a mention.
Learning how to code is a great way to improve your hiring potential and open the door to more lucrative careers, but getting the ball rolling can be a bit daunting considering the number of languages out there and steep price associated with training.

Our world is a colorful one, and when it comes time to repaint the house or create a new design, many of us look to our surroundings for inspiration. However, matching colors from the outside world to our canvas isn’t the most precise process when we’re just eyeballing it. The Nix Pro Color Sensor removes the […]
You probably remember the Twisty Glass Blunt since we love to write about it. And you may also remember its little buddy, the Twisty Glass Mini. Well, today we’ve got a fun surprise that isn’t so little. Less isn’t always more, and on those days when you need to decompress with a good smoke, the Twisty XL […]
