- At long last, we've received a response from the California
Franchise Tax Board (CAFTB). We are officially a tax-exempt group in CA.
However, the letter lists our starting date as 3/9/2010, whereas our
non-profit status with the IRS was as of 3/9/2000. Greg thinks it's
likely that they mistyped, and will contact them for clarification.

like to nominate yourself, or someone else, for a position, please email

- Ariel Waldman, founder of SpaceHack.org and creator of
SF Science Hack Day, discussed what it means to hack space exploration
