What is dorkbot?

Dorkbot is a regular meeting of artists, hackers, designers, engineers, students and other interested parties who are involved in the creation of electronic or otherwise technological art (in the broadest sense of the term). Dorkbot was started in New York in 2000 by Douglas Irving Repetto and has since spread to over 40 cities worldwide. See them all at: http://dorkbot.org.
