2009 & 2017
Hacker Trip to China
A big group of hackers/makers travelled with Mitch Altman to China, including Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Shanghai, and Beijing. I went on the very first one in 2009, and again on Trip 7 in 2017. Both times we toured factories & makerspaces, gave talks, got weird honors from local governments, rode electric unicycles, and generally had an amazing time. Mitch leads a tour every year. Sound fun? All you need to do is search for HTTCxxxx (xxxx is the year) and add your name to the wiki page to join (anarchy baby!).
