Last Weekend we (Me, Sarah, Sebastian, Christoph) were @Science Hack Day Berlin 2014 hacking on a prototype for IPO Creating Circles. It was a lot of fun. Interessting hacks around us. And in the end … we won a prize! The Design prize from the School for Design Thinking – Hasso-Plattner-Institut in Potsdam. (And i also know, that we were second in audience voting \o/.)
The new IPO prototype (in further development)

Java Script (node.js) Hacker wanted for Science Hack Day Berlin Project
Hi, this weekend (24-25-26 October) is Science Hack Day Berlin and i am searching for someone skilled in Java Script (node.js) to help me with a project for some hours. I have a ticket for you to the event :-)
What is the project about?
… for hacking towards a circular economy. In the context of the IPO tables project on open source & circular economy we created a little experimental prototype for a software to map and connect resources in a playful way. The software provokes and asks for constant creative outside the box recombinations of materials, devices, skills and time – just what hacking is about! A hack-triggering-tool. (Whatever will support the development of a circular economy has to support the hacking of our whole environment ☺ )
I want to experiment with the prototype and develope it further in the context of the Science Hack Day. I need help with the software engineering-part. Pavlik Elf developed the first prototype but he is not in town and busy with other work. To make the prototype functional and useful for experiments 2 features have to be added – estimated workload: 4 hours (Java Script (node.js)).
If you are interested and like to join me, Science Hack Day Berlin and the IPO tables project, please get in touch.
