Caturday Hacking

Today, at cjb’s for Caturday Hacking: Uploading photos from Grendel’s last week, and pushing my flickr2facebook scripts for copying photosets from Flickr to Facebook to github so that people could theoretically look at it and possibly re-use it. Though I’m not really convinced that’s very likely, given that apparently I’m using a two-generations old facebook API to do the stuff it does. 🙂

    What does Caturday mean?

    Ah, context, the missing piece in any blog post I attempt to make in a group setting! 🙂

    Caturday in general is related to some other set of memes on the internet, but in this case, it’s a case of a friend — who happens to have a cat at his place — opening up his apartment on Saturday afternoons for people to hang out and hack on whatever project they feel like. No rules, no limitations, just hang out with a bunch of other people in an apartment and make progress on whatever thing you want to work on.

    (Urban Dictionary reports that the origin of the term was from 4chan; “Though the origins are fuzzy, Caturday was spawned on one of the many *Chan image boards by the user Anonymous. On every Saturday, you post cats for lulz.”; this particular interpretation is mostly unrelated.)

    Okay. So the three essentials are (1) an open house (2) on Saturday (3) that contains a cat. Gotcha.
