[edit] Abstract

How would you like to go on quests and earn achievements... IN REAL LIFE? Learn how to use the MD5 hash algorithm and the Dow Jones Index to generate adventure, to explore beautiful British Columbian landscapes, get exercise, earn nerd-cred, and meet interesting people; and hear tales from those who've done it. Details on the mechanics of geohashing and its community, and what goes on in our region.

Good question, I'll get around to reading their TOS tomorrow. I'll try and have the video up this week. Sorry for the delay, folks. - Elbie 04:43, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
The sound quality on the uncompressed version is barely good enough to understand, and the compressed versions I've tried are all unintelligible so far. :( - Elbie 18:32, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
