Every hacker is different, and that’s exactly what we expect to see when this is all through. Something new, something different — all with the potential to disrupt.

So far about half of registrants have made it into the venue, with the rest still signing in. Laptops are already fired up, hackers are putting their heads together, and the energy in the room is palpable. I’d guestimate that about 90 percent of the laptops in here are Macs, and the great majority of those are MacBook Airs. Apparently that’s the hacker’s notebook of choice. A full snack bar, shown below, is ready and waiting, though these guys seem much more preoccupied with getting their hack on.

We’ll keep you posted with the coolest projects throughout the day, but for now check out the first few photos of the madness.
