Who needs a post graduate degree when you can do Citizen Science! (One of the many fantastic bits of flare from the Order of the Science Scouts of Exemplary Repute and Above Average Physique, or O.O.T.S.S.O.E.R.A.A.A.P. for short.)
I find it interesting that it’s 2010 and the mainstream voice is still hung up on the definition of “hacker”. Do people really still think that hackers are a bunch of thieves, spammers, and vandals? When much of the rest of the world recognizes the value of ingenious engineering, and DIY hackery is becoming so obviously mainstream, I can’t help but think that the old “hackers are evildoers” saw is only still around to provide a vaguely controversial lede.
Still, these folks manage to paint a pretty good picture of what’s going on in their respective spaces. And Matt, as usual, keeps things on target with a barrage of crushing one-liners. Great job, guys!
