Open Knowledge X Meets X Mitch Altman
On the 15th of February, we are welcoming the San Francisco-based hacker and inventor, best known for inventing TV-B-Gone remote controls, a keychain that turns off TVs in public places. Amongst many other initiatives, he was also co-founder of 3ware, a successful Silicon Valley startup in the late 1990s, and did pioneering work in Virtual Reality in the mid-1980s.
For the last several years Mitch has been giving talks, and leading workshops around the world, teaching people to create cool things with microcontrollers and teaching everyone to solder. He promotes hackerspaces and open source hardware, and mentors others wherever he goes.
At the event, Mitch will give an autobiographical presentation — with the intent that others can learn from his experiences he will share his personal story of becoming an inventor, talk about his crucial involvement in the hackerspace movement and the obstacles and opportunities that paved his path towards happiness and self-actualization.
Join us on the 15th of February at BeCentral to be inspired by Mitch Altman, the co-founder of Noisebridge hackerspace in San Francisco, and President and CEO of Cornfield Electronics.
