Tonight was the ADHOC Showcase: the soul of the conference. The showcase is the event where attendees get to show off the hacks they've been working on for the previous two days or so. This year's showcase featured some excellent hacks, including a Google blinky-light badge synced up to blinky Google logos on web pages, a set of alternative kernel panic screens for Mac OS X, and a somewhat-self-aware robot.
Like most ADHOC feature events, the Showcase started at midnight -- actually, a little later -- and ended about 3 AM. At that point, an impromptu geek film festival began, as we showed geeky clip after clip, including such classics as William Shatner singing Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, Leonard Nimoy doing Bilbo Baggins, various Strongbad e-mails, webby favorites such as Hattan ar Din and Yatta!, the Humphrey Bogart version of Lord of the Rings, and many more. At 5 AM we decided to pack it in.
And a geeky great time was had by all.
