Benjamin Mako Hill is a social scientist, technologist, and activist. In all three roles, he works to understand why some attempts at peer production — like Wikipedia and Linux — build large volunteer communities while the vast majority never attract even a second contributor. He is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication at the University of Washington. He is also a faculty affiliate at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society and an affiliate at the Institute for Quantitative Social Science — both at Harvard University. He has also been a leader, developer, and contributor to the free and open source software community for more than a decade as part of the Debian and Ubuntu projects. He is the author of several best-selling technical books, a member of the Free Software Foundation board of directors and an advisor to the Wikimedia Foundation.

No video of the event yet, sorry!

I'm going to be making a series of GNU/Linux themed cocktails. The good news is that the source for the cocktails is available! The bad news is that you'll have to compile these drinks yourself.

I've listed the night's menu below here from easiest to most difficult. There are four drinks including one non-alcoholic drink (marked EtOH-free). If you planning on making drinks with me, you'll probably need to shop for ingredients. My advice it to chose what you want have and shop just for that drink. Or just bring a beer or glass of wine a cup of tea to watch and hang out!

Cocktail 1: XOFF ignored, mumble mumble [Easiest]

Ingredients:

  • 6 oz IPA [Something local!]
  • 1½ oz Campari

[PREPARATION AHEAD OF TIME]

Assemble your tools including:

  • Something to pour your drink into! I recommend a lowball/DOF glass
  • Something to measure your ingredients with
  • Ice!

Cocktail 2: Not a typewriter [EtOH-free]

Ingredients:

  • 1 oz Lemon juice
  • 1 ¼ oz Rosemary simple syrup
  • 3 oz sparkling water

Optional ingredients (if you're not into the whole EtOH-free thing):

  • 1½ oz Gin

[PREPARATION AHEAD OF TIME]

Preparing the rosemary simple syrup involves boiling 150g sugar, 150g water, 2-3 tablespoons of rosemary (fresh or dry). Then let cool.

Assemble your tools including:

  • Something to juice your lemons with
  • Something to pour your drink into! I recommend a highball glass
  • Something to measure your ingredients with
  • Ice!

Also... ingredients for the lemon maple foam:
