Hack Club, the hands-on hacker fest from the minds behind Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian’s “uncorporation” Breadpig, is happening in New York on Friday.
DIY-oriented hackers can look forward to drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows and building robots using Lego Mindstorms kits.
It sounds like there’s going to be some sort of contest, too, but specifics are hazy. The time is 9 p.m. and the location is Manhattan, but the exact address won’t be published: Hack Club is restricting entry to those who can solve this word puzzle, derived from sci-fi writer Isaac Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics, to decipher the address of the location:
To prevent just anyone from showing up and to boost the mystique of Hack Club, each Hack Club will be at a different, secret location! Only those 1337 enough to solve a (geeky, of course) puzzle will be granted the whereabouts.
Is it in a blanket fort?
