After two years of running the Hacker Blood Drive, here’s a blog talking about the progress it’s made so far. Shortly after launching, I created a Red25 group with the idea that if people joined it we could track the donations. This year at some point, the team developed into two members now.

Note: I realised half way through writing this, I really just wanted to share some of the fun I had beekeeping. There’s some finances in there but mainly I just wanted to write about bees.

I was hooked and proceeded to go to as many as I could, assuming my wallet allowed it. I am now fortunate enough to give back. After my keyboard workshop at TuskCon, I was heavily encouraged to submit a soldering workshop at BSides Melbourne (thanks Lukasz).
