HacDC Opening Night Portrait
Originally uploaded by acaben

Tonight is the debut of HacDC’s Tuesday Tech Seminar Series, with seminars designed to help bring local geeks, dorks, makers and hackers closer together. In the first Tuesday Tech Seminar Series, Dorkbot DC overlords and Gareth Branwyn and Alberto Gaitán will join fellow HacDC Members Katie Bechtold (DC Linux Chix) and Nick Farr (hackerspaces.org) in a conversation on building the DC Tech Community.

The seminars will take place most Tuesdays at 8:30 PM, and will feature a wide range of topics and interactive opportunities of general interest to DC’s finest hackers. If you have any suggestions for speakers or topics, send an email to info@hacdc.org

A decade ago, Ben Stanfield found himself at the intersection of politics and technology as he wandered nomadically around the country managing congressional races. But when he moved to DC 6 years ago, he found that the intersection had become, in the grand tradition of L’Enfant, a circle where politics and technology were joined by science, photography and a host of smaller side streets of interest. These days, he works as a Macintosh Server Administrator for a large governmental health institute in Bethesda. In his spare time, he’s an avid photographer, charter member at HacDC, and serves on the Board of Directors of the Columbia Heights Youth Club. In 2005 he founded of Draft Obama, a national grassroots movement to convince Barack Obama to run for President. Everything he writes here speaks for itself and not on behalf of any other group, organization, person, or any of his other personalities.
