One of the events I'm most looking forward to at our upcoming Weekend of Wonder event is Show and Tell! Bring something to share! Something you treasure! Something you've made! Or just something you think will entertain the group!
We know that Boing Boing events usually attract engaged, creative folk who are every bit as expert and interesting as our presenters, so we wanted to make sure everyone has an opportunity to share! If you've designed it, built it, collected it, or just love it -- bring something with you that'll fascinate us all!
Every attendee who brings something they deem cool will have a few minutes to describe, or demonstrate, their THING to the group.
I'll be bringing my Curta Type 2 mechanical calculator. This stellar piece of history is the crown jewel in my collection of antique calculation and computation devices. I'll try to quickly tell its amazing story, and then pass the calculator around for folks to play with.
In addition to sharing cool stuff with awesome people, the Weekend of Wonder is packed with incredible presentations, workshops and group activities. For three days Happy Mutants are taking over a fantastic resort we have already visited and fallen in love with. You will too. So come play with us!

I’ve mentioned it online before, but here we go: Two years ago, my wife and I decided to leave our rented home behind and move into a 40-foot RV. We spend our spring and summer in Alberta, Canada where she has a job for six months of the year working as an addictions counselor. The […]
Androkavo tests some of the cheap eBay solder against the brand-name stuff; it gets there in the end, but it’s surely not the advertized 60/40 alloy and needs to be close to 400° before it behaves itself.
While it’s fun to watch Hollywood action heroes hack into cameras to spy on their targets, the thought of an actual cybercriminal using our own security devices against us is chilling for most. That’s what makes the iPM World HD 360 Degree 1080p Wireless IP Camera essential for anyone looking to deter digital and physical intruders […]
Spring came and went, but we’re not here to judge if you didn’t get around to cleaning up your living space.
