Cower brief mortals! Dorkbot Chicago is BACK!
After a long hiatus, Dorkbot Chicago is back in action. We’ll be using Catalyze Chicago (www.catalyzechicago.org) as our base of operations, and have an exciting lineup of talks / workshops. First and foremost, Nick Briz will be giving an artist talk.
The main goals of dorkbot are: to create an informal, friendly environment in which people can talk about the work they're doing and to foster discussion about that work; to help bring together people from different backgrounds who are interested in similar things; to give us all an opportunity to see the strange things our neighbors are doing with electricity. dorkbot isn't really a forum for formal artist talks or lectures, but rather a chance for diverse people to have friendly conversations about interesting ideas.
