Hey all, if you are near NYC, come join us in putting Pd on old PDAs  
and iPods:

> October 14: Open source your mobile devices
> Untethered workshop
> Date: Tues., Oct. 14, 7PM
> Location: Eyebeam, 540 W. 21st St., NYC
> Cost: Free
> Got an old iPod? Install iPodLinux on it and turn it into an 8-bit
> sequencer or touchscreen guitar. Or hook up an Arduino to your old
> wifi router and discover what's possible.
> This workshop is based on the idea of making iPods, wifi routers and
> PDAs "generative", by changing their software to enable creative
> experimentation. Until recently, only very skilled hackers were able
> to "untether" their own devices. Thanks to the work of so many
> hackers, it's getting easier. Yes, there are still irksome technical
> details master, but that's what this workshop is for!
> Eyebeam resident Hans-Christoph Steiner, together with Chris "the
> Widget" DiMauro will lead the workshop. They've been collecting a
> wide range of devices and hacking them with free software and now
> want to help you do the same.
> Check the wiki to determine if your seemingly obsolete devices are
> supported, and if so, bring them along: http://dev.eyebeam.org/
