Greetings Hackerspaces,

After discussing the idea over several call-ins we're pleased to announce:

The Global Hackerspace Cupcake Challenge!

To mail a cupcake to another hackerspace in pristine condition.

   - Cupcake must be a standard sized or larger cupcake with frosting and at
   least one sugar based topper/decoration.
   - The cupcake should be home made or in the hackerspace, points to be
   deducted for store bought cupcakes.
   - Distance must exceed 1600 kilometres (1000 miles), bonus points for
   over seas.
   - The package can have dimensions up to 30cm by 30cm by 30cm (1ft by 1ft
   by 1ft) and weight up to 2kgs (4lbs).
   - The package must be sent by the national postal service in your country
   you can spend up to the equivalent of 40 EUR or 55 USD, which should allow
   for an express postage option.
   - A video must be taken while opening the package and uploaded to Youtube
   or similar.
   - All participating spaces must have their ustream or similar link on the
   matrix page during the hackathon.


The recieving hackerspace will be the judge of the condition of the cupcake.
Judging Criteria ((1-10) on each)

   1. The creativity of method used to stabalize the cupcake
   2. The stability of mixture / quality of ingredients
   3. Appearance

All hackerspaces and members of them. Coordinate which hackerspace you will

Synchronous Hackathon the weekend of January 15th

At your local participating hackerspace.
