Bee Hacker best describes their mission below:
BeeHacker.com is devoted to the cross-pollination of beekeeping and technology. At its core are several evolving projects that benefit the honey bee and beekeepers. This is no ivory tower research lab, no secret skunk works, and no private patent mill. Because good science doesn’t depend on sponsorship by vested interests. This website is a collaborative development effort open to all based on open source and creative common technologies for the benefit of all.
The site documents a number of very interesting projects including How to Build a Portable Hive Scale, Brood Chamber & Environmental Monitoring and even the more esoteric topic of Acoustic Analysis of Bee Behavior. BeeHacker.com inspires me to apply some of my seemingly unrelated interests to beekeeping, I expect to return often.
