Vancouver Hack Space Demos

In our commitment to giving you the most bang for your conference buck, and because some of us believe that cross-pollinating the formal Open Education community with other grass-roots based initiatives 1 is one of the key directions for this movement to grow, we invited folks from the Vancouver Hack Space to come down and demo some of their projects throughout the duration of the conference. They will be setting up in the “Unconference” space, Room C215, alongside various Remixathon groups who will also be busy demoing and, well, remixing, and we hope you will drop by for a look and a chat.
