Roboexotica 2010

Roboexotica is the premier festival for cocktail robotics, held annually in Vienna, Austria. Robots from all over the world compete in such categories as cocktail serving, cocktail mixing, "smoking culture", and human-robot interaction.

Festival co-organizers Monochrom, known for their highly technical and artistically literate pranks, have selected none other than your editor as this year's artist in residence (Kunstresidenzler). For the remainder of 2010 we will be submitting stories daily from Vienna, Berlin, and Poland. Tune in tomorrow for our review of the food at the National Gallery in Washington, D.C.

Welcome to Modern Hacker

Welcome to the first lifestyle magazine for the Modern Hacker. The Modern Hacker is a true Renaissance Man: equally at home discussing Dungeons & Dragons, minimal spanning trees, or terminal color schemes. He draws on both the classics and the contemporary, from "Common Lisp the Language" to "JavaScript: The Good Parts". Part cartographer, part philosopher, part mixologist: just a hoopy frood who knows where his towel is.

Thanks for reading and please enjoy our publication.
