Clean meat, cultured meat, or sometimes known as lab-grown meat, is deriving meat products by way of cellular agriculture technologies instead of traditional animal farming. Popularized by the "lab grown hamburger" in 2013, lab grown meat is starting to become a reality. Clean meat could radically change the world in regards to the environment, animal welfare, and health. What is a Design Jam? We'll be getting into small groups of designers and hackers to brainstorm what the next generation storefront will look like. This is a mini-hackathon where groups work on visuals, sketches, and concepts of future retail stores.

- CYCLEHACK: the worlwide cycling hackathon is coming to SF! Sept 15-17 2017!
Our meetup page here : https://www.meetup.com/CYCLEHACK-the-worlwide-cycling-hackathon-is-coming-to-SF/events/243295308/ CycleHack is a 48 hr event which aims to reduce the barriers to cycling, taking place across the globe in September 2017. CycleHack video : https://youtu.be/e4TE4A7ZXS0 Get your tickets here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cyclehack-sf-2017-tickets-36462159300 Now in its fourth year, CycleHack is an annual non-profit event, taking place in over 35 different locations simultaneously on one weekend in September. CycleHack is on a mission to make the world more sustainable through encouraging citizens to take a pro-active, DIY approach to reducing the barriers to cycling. We believe that through empowering individuals, organisations and governments to collaborate, share skills and prototype new cycling ideas, we can build a healthier, more active and sustainable world. Ideas will be implemented and tested in the city to create prototypes and see how they might work in the real world. All the ideas created are then shared on the CycleHack Open Source Catalogue for the world to see, share and use in their own cities. When? // Friday 15th Sept > 6pm - 9pm: Includes launch, Inspirationnal Speeches, drinks & snacks // Saturday 16th Sept > 9:30am - 6pm: Ideation (am) & Prototyping (pm) // Sunday 17th Sept : • 9:30am - 5pm: Testing + Showcase preparation • 5pm - 6pm : Showcase • 6pm - 7pm : Socialize (you'll be able to try the famous Timbuk2 Bike Margarita Blender...;) Where? CycleHack is hosted by Timbuk2 in their Factory Store in The Mission. What do I have with my ticket ? You'll have access to the site the all weekend. You will benefit the facilitation by professionnals working in the realm of Product Design, Design Thinking, Software Development, etc. It's a great opportunity to work on ideas you may have but never took the time to prototype it and test it, experience the Design Thinking process and do some networking with great people while having fun for a good cause ! + We will have a mini-Fablab set-up on-site with bunch of tools, a 3D-printer and material to prototype ! + Free beers supplied by Fort Point all weekend ! + Empanadas offered Friday night + Breakfast Sat & Sun + For the Sunday showcase, we'll have the famous Timbuk2 Bike Margarita Blender ! FAQs: I can’t make the whole weekend. Can I still come? Ideally, you’ll be able to make the whole event and to support the building of hacks throughout, but you are under no obligation to stay the whole time. You can also attend only the Friday night or Sunday afternoon, to discover what exactly is a CycleHack. I’m not a cyclist. Can I come? Of course, everyone is welcome! If you consider yourself a non-cyclist, then this is the perfect opportunity to hack the barriers which stop you from getting on the saddle. We want to make the world bike-friendly for everyone. What is a Hack? A Hack can be a tangible prototype of an idea which addresses a barrier to cycling. It can also mean to retrospectively modify current infrastructure, policy and / or cycling products & services using a cyclist’s intuition. With the support of Timbuk2, Strava, Spanner Product Development and Fort Point Beers
