On this week's Byte: Guests: April Staines of Girl Geek Dinners Melbourne joins the team to discuss the SheHacks hackathon - tickets are currently sold out but if some become available, proceeds go to One Girl (plus check out the trophy!). If you miss out on SheHacks, there's always SheMakes in October... Digital blacksmith Paul Mignone from the University of Melbourne comes into studio to talk about his work with 3D printing technology - Paul discusses his work here, and Vanessa and Lachlan check out the goods here! News: More indications that authorities including Victoria Police and Senator George Brandis are pushing for compulsory retention of browsing histories. Bronwen Clune has complied a list of Australia's top 50 female programmers - check out who's on the list (and feel free to add to it!). The Victorian Government has promised free wifi across the Melbourne CBD. No promise of the quality of said wifi, but s'pose it's a start... Are you a journalist? Be afraid - the robots are finally taking over... Slightly Lighter News: Check out this beautiful piece of poetry by Bad BIOS, based (just a bit), on Alan Ginsberg's Howl (people are awesome and creative and awesome). Vale Windows XP, that Microsoft will no longer support - you served us well... OK, so these walking solar-powered garden lights are simultanenously cute and creepy (yes, it's possible). Presented by Vanessa Toholka and Lachlan Simpson. Keep up with Byte on Twitter, Facebook, and G+ - catch you next week! http://profiles.google.com/byteintoit http://twitter.com/byteintoit http://friendfeed.com/byteintoit
