Cable Revisited
Every vacation I get to experience cable tv. A history channel with everything but history, science fiction means people who believe they are ghost hunters, news that makes 1980s NY Post headlines look Pulitzer worthy, 10 mins of the same commercials you watched 20 mins ago, movies you would not watch even on Netflix….and people pay for the privilege monthly. Yep.

"Dad, Why Is This Art?"

"Dad, Why Is This Art?"
Wandering around the more abstract areas of MOMA the above question was asked by both my kids. My answer….go place something between the two pictures in question. Why did you choose that thing? What does it mean to you? What do you want others to get from it? Hey, you just had a popup exhibit at MOMA, can I have your autograph?
Conversation followed. They came up with Art as any expression , could be anything anytime anyany.
And thus Art was defined…for now;).

The messy manglings of the human condition hits the core of the Arduino project. Maybe Notch was on the right track when he offered to settle a business dispute with a Quake deathmatch. However this kerfluffle turns out I hope it does the least amount of damage to the movement of force that has been so much a part of the Arduino meme.

Massimo Banzi tells us about a serious rift in the core Arduino team, which is just coming to light now. One of the founding team members has gone off on his own, claiming rights to Arduino and starting a separate operation. We asked Massimo to explain the situation in his …

Over the last couple of days many of the objects I see on Thingiverse offer yet another possibility for a Raspberry Pi case. This one needed hardly any modifications aside from a cable draw in the back. Big enough to hold the Rapi, battery, Adafruit boost/charger and several usb devices. Some sanding,a little paint….done.

Though people think my job is making YouTube videos, most of my working
time is actually spent writing.

When I think about how to work better or faster, it’s all about improving
the writing process. I read a lot of books about writing because that’s
where 90% of the benefits and 90% of the bottlenecks of my working life
reside.

I’ve been doing this long enough to have developed a rough process of my
own and I’m comfortable enough …

One of the vectors 3d printing opens up is building up from all that has come before. Having a set of bones handy gives us another way to answer math questions and learn something about process, design and production.
These were done up on a Lulzbot Mini using neutral HIPS filament and a quick hand pass with a black sharpie.
