What's Dorkbot Alba?
Around the globe there is a movement of small, autonomous gatherings with
a similar goal: offering a platform to artists, designers, scientists,
nerds, students and others who let themselves be inspired by technology.
This movement is called Dorkbot.

Why Dorkbot Alba?
Alba is the gaelic name for Scotland. Alba is the genetically altered
rabbit created for artist Eduardo Kac. Alba is a brand of consumer
electronics. That's why!
