Space Open Source and Competitions #1

Here's more about Spacehack:

Behind Spacehack: GeekDad Talks to Ariel Waldman - Wired GeekDad: Spacehack is the brainchild of Ariel Waldman, recently named one of the most influential individuals in Silicon Valley. Waldman was previously a program coordinator at NASA CoLab, which connects communities inside and outside NASA to collaborate.


GD: Have you participated in any of these projects yourself?

AW: I've supported the NASA Regolith Excavation Challenge (part of the NASA Centennial Challenges progam) but I have not yet been a participant. I plan to participate in the Stardust@Home cause soon.

Ariel has some other projects:

Pownce, a social P2P sharing application

CupcakeCamp - an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and eat cupcakes in an open environment.

Shake Well Before Use - coverage of the intersection of art, advertising, sex and technology
