Glad to see the makerspace movement getting some focus in Washington,DC. We need more of this.

I watched this live! It was fantastic. The event was much longer than this edited version. It was heartwarming to hear all of the Makerspaces from across the country sounding off about their community centers.

It's so great to see the private sector and government come together on this effort.

Here is the USA Gov Org that is offering significant support and avenues for grants for existing and new makerspace projects.

After The New Screen Savers this week, I spent some time with Dick DeBartolo for an interview on the GizFiz. Somehow that means I get an autographed Mad Magazine. Way cool!

I am sure there will be many more studies of this election cycle to come. This one is interesting.

I guess I don't see "persistent antisocial behavior" when he's very popular and filling stadiums. How is that called anti-social I wonder. No worries I don't mean to be argumentative, we'll just disagree.

Wow. How did I miss this. This will solve the problem of my kids running Windows to play games and me preferring to do things on Linux at least for simple tasks. I would still prefer to run open source software of course, but Windows just became much more usable for developers. What do you think of running Linux on top of the Windows kernel?
Microsoft is reaching out to Linux developers in a way that the company never has before. "The Bash shell is coming to Windows. Yes, the real Bash is coming to Windows," said Microsoft's Kevin...

I was really impressed when the Onion Omega came out. Now the same group is releasing the Omega2 starting at only $5! That means you can get a full Linux based system with built in wifi for less then a Frappuccino at Starbucks or a bottle of water at the amusement park.
World's smallest Linux server, with Wi-Fi built-in. Building for the Internet of Things doesn't get easier than this!

+Aaron Newcomb I'm probably being overly pedantic myself. This is pretty cool none-the-less.

Nice space. 
I had the chance to visit this hackerspace while I was in Israel in may 2015. TAMI stands for "Tel Aviv Makers International".

RPi powered speakers that look like homemade drums. I am going to have to look into max2play.
 
We can't get over how beautiful these networked drum speakers look.

SparkFun Electronics, Inc. have outdone themselves, using traditional techniques to build skin drums that pose as unique speakers on a Raspberry Pi-powered network.

Dr. Sampson gets 5 stars, but the opticians are awful. I tried to get progressive lenses here and after a few tries with obviously flawed lenses they said there was nothing else they could do and wouldn't refund my money. Take your prescription with you and get it filled elsewhere.

This Starbucks is really nice and the inside is one of the nicest I have seen. Very surprising given the neighborhood it is in. Wifi is fast and there is plenty of seating.
