In the Lab

Wondering how to keep your data safe? We're hosting Learn to Protect Your Data on Saturday, May 14, part of Cryptoparty Chicago. Bring your mobile device to get the most out of the event, and find out which encryption and security apps to get for your particular device and needs. The Chicago Reader has an event overview and details on what you can expect. You can register in advance, or just drop by.

We'll demo our knitting machine Saturday, May 21 in preparation for some one-on-one sessions next month. Bring your questions and project ideas, and we'll let you know what to expect in June.
