February 9th Open House Recap

Well I got there a bit late, as I also attended the second ever PhillySec meeting earlier that night. So when I finally got to Hive there were already a lot of interesting things going on. I noticed Sean McBeth working on a contraption that he revealed to be an Atari Punk Console (which he later finished that night), Jordan Miller printing away on his newly completed RepRap, and Brendan Schrader and PJ Santoro doing some music in the back of the room. Brendan had an Electribe with him (having previously engineered new features in to), and PJ was tinkering with some Linux-based karaoke software.

Yes, thanks to PJ’s karaoke software, Brendan’s audio mixer, and one of Chris Thompson’s (and Brendan’s) BOOMcases we indeed had an impromptu karaoke session. Yours truly sang “Folsom Prison Blues” by Johnny Cash, and “Maneater” by Hall & Oates; which I must say was my first time doing karaoke. Eventually the night ended after we did a modest set of about 7 or 8 songs. It was a blast, and something that we may well do again in the future.

Next Wednesday we’re hosting another game night. We’ll be bringing back Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator for a second round.

Hope to see you there!

  1. For about 3 or 4 hours after open house “ended”, this place was a freaking riot. I’ve never seen so much karaoke-sans-alcohol in one place. And I have to say, we rocked out.
