Check out what we’ve been up to!
RBC 2013 has gotten off to a roaring start! Our i3 Build team have taken planes, trains, and automobiles to converge on one of the most exciting moments together this summer! Matt, Sean, Rocco, Eric and Marie are on site and hacking away! Mission Control has dozens of people in a flurry to find our guys(and girl) directions to the hardware store, prices, part numbers or even the closest hair salon for gel/cream/fiber/magic to keep Matt’s hair in tip top shape during the craziness!
### Updates ###
[6/13 3:00PM] — The team has dismantled and hacked the floor fans provided by RBC this year. Truly a sacrifice during the blistering Brooklyn heat.
[6/13 3:25PM] — Matt is dangerously low on hair product!
[6/13 3:37PM] — Matt: “We are at Home Depot, Message for supplies we are grabbing corded drills”
