Randen update 2.0

Welcome to Randen 2.0!

Die letzten paar Wochen hat sich der Rütelmaa üüübel in den Putzwahn reingesteigert, nen neuen Ofen installiert, Küche renoviert und alles gestrichen. Merci!

Währendessen habe ich mich vorallem im neuen FabLab - Underes Ätzisloo / Randen mit 3D-Printern, BabyGnusbuinos und Kafi-Schnapps rumgeschlagen habe, Psychobillies und anderen Plastik-Kram geprintet.

DIYbio article and interview in Neue Zürcher Zeitung

An article in today's issue of NZZ (4. April 2012 Neue Zürcher Zeitung) gives a nice overview of the amateur biologist scene in LA. The journalist Lena Stallmach visited the people from LA biohackers in their own space/lab (which is currently in boxes, prepared for the move to a bigger space) and describes their working environment, dreams of inventions, ongoing projects and workshops in collaboration with the FBI.

In the interview dusjagr gives some info about the local movement in switzerland and the hackteria network, some critical reflections on the promises the DIYbio movement paralleling the agro/chem industries, the potential of garage biotech for developing countries and generally the role of DIY science in educating and empowering a democratic society.

X-Spirituaahl Sound Hacks, Workshop with Keith Lam, Hong Kong

The one and only, first time ever "X-Spirituaahl Sound Hacks" workshop, combining the easy hackable mantra boxes with some local sound toys, buddha machines and maybe even some musical souvenirs from indonesia. We plan an introduction into simple music toy hacking for making experimental and noisy tunes, first steps into lo-fi electronic circuits needed to expand the hacked circuitry with oscillators and amplifiers and most of all having fun hacking!

During the two hours I wanted to show some examples, on how such interdisciplinary activies in the sphere of biohackers, artists and geeks has a great and inspiring influence on developing new ways to teach and communicate science. During the 5 years of working in the framework of SGMK and the hackteria project, also in different cultural background from Europe through India, Taiwan and Indonesia, i could learn from all the collaborations. Being always open to learn new things is key of being a good teacher! Examples have been shown on how the HackteriaLab2011 has influenced the workshop for children at Ars Electronica "BioCyberKidzz" and generally the DIY and hacker's approach on my teaching to the students in life science technology at FHNW, in the "wetPONG" lab courses.
