At the EasterHack in Munich some people asked, if there would be a Blinkenlights-reproduction-workshop. Unfortunetaly there was not enough space at the EasterHack and not enough time to make preparations. Besides of that, Main.StefanSchuermans had already the idea about organizing a BlinkenArea-meeting on a long summer-weekend. Because this year there will be no CCCamp, where we could meet.
These are the reasons for organizing CBC #1.
- 10.06. - 13.06.2004
- Landing-Ground: the garden of Stefan Schürmans' parents, which is "cheap to rent"
- Base-Camp: party cellar
The area is already supplied with running water, sanitary facilities, swimming pool, barbecue, power supply, LAN and internet and is located on the southern outskirts of Mönchengladbach (ca. 50km NW from Cologne).
- celebrating 1 year BlinkenArea
- building a big Arcade: ARCADEmaxi
- improving existing blinking projects
- planning the future of the BlinkenArea (i.e. TROIA)
- supporting newbies to build their own blinking project
- portable mini-projects (i.e. KippenLights)
- Retro-Computing with C64-Lights
- barbecue, splash around in the pool, lying in the sun
- just meeting and having fun
