1501 East Shore Highway
Berkeley, California

The ACCRC, a computer recycling center in Berkeley, will be hosting a 24-hour Rebuilding, reengineering, and just plain geeking event. The center will open its doors to Makers who want to root through the piles of old electronics and build new and working things out of the ashes.

Bring your own tools and sleeping bag.

We'll be figuring something out for pizza and beverages, at some point in the evening. Lovely 4th Street, Berkeley is within walking distance for food and coffee as well.

At the end of the 24 hour event, we'll see what has happened. Who knows, someone might build something cool, the hydrogen car might be improved, someone might have jabbed an eye out...

There is potential for things to get out of hand with power tools, engines, and vast amounts of computers. We'll need volunteers to be designated ninnies, and shout "DON'T PUT THAT IN YOUR EAR!"

As such, we ask that you behave yourselves and use the time to be constructive, rather than destructive... though blowing up inkjet printers and nuking laptops is entirely likely.

Sponsored by Make Magazine, Digg.com, and GigaOm. Want to sponsor the event too? Contact VonGuard.

Who knows what will happen. All that's certain is that there will be oodles of old hardware to play with.

This is fantastic. When the recycling events were going on, I just wanted to run up and start grabbing cool stuff, but that didn't seem appropriate 8^)

This will be much better than that....

I won't last all night (I share responsibility for two young kids), and I may not make it by noon, but by hook or by crook I'll be there.
