DANGERCON 2012!!!


fredhack hosted dangercon and partnered with NOVA Labs to pull it off.  dangercon was an event that focused on hacks best done outdoors.  we did some black smithing, made model rockets, tossed things in the fire to see what color they burned, threw atlatls, and taught welding.  see some of the activities broke out in posts below and visit the NOVA Labs blogpost for their descriptions and great photos.

we plan on having another dangercon sometime in spring 2013.
