This week is Hack Week. We’re going to take a closer look at emerging technologies that can be hacked to be more cost efficient, along with how one organization is breaking down barriers for the LGBT community to integrate with coding groups.
We’ll talk with Richard Reininger, Vice President of Marketing for Next Thing Co., a company with an elite intuition for hacking expensive technologies into affordable alternatives. We’ll talk about the world’s first nine dollar computer, along with Teddy Ruxpin–a teddy bear that can be hacked to say virtually anything.
For our Third Eye perspective into the question this week we’ll wrap it up by talking with Lukas Blakk, founder of the AscendProject.org, an organization supporting women, LGBTQ communities and other minorities that fall through the cracks in learning open source software development.
Be sure to watch as we take questions out to the streets!
