Luckily enough, I'll be back in town for this: +Farset Labs'  second birthday,  Intel on as corporate members, chance to play with the Galileo Board, and bringing some of my favourite people together as part of an advisory meeting. Brilliant!

Unfortunately can't make it to this one but will be joining up in future!
 
Tonight is the first meetup of the Liverpool Drones Group at +DoES Liverpool. Free to attend, open to anyone interested in Drones, UAVs, Blimps, Rockets and any other kinds of flying geekery.

I only really post technically relevant stuff here, as most of my circles are fellow "early adopters" and statistically more technical.

Facebook for friends, twitter for pr business, g+ for geekery, real life for everything else :)

Anyone else care to share their experiences?
 
Google + take two.  Anyone out there a serious user?

Calling Tech Geeks: Need to put together a spec for a high performance machine, but have been out of hardware land for a while. Basically want a rack-mount processing server (not GPGPU, maybe later). Large amounts of RAM, I'm thinking i7 at least, although not the full splurge on dual Xenons.

Any advice?

Great book written by DoES Liverpool majordomos on the #InternetOfThings. Got a chance to scan it last night and it's a brilliantly practical guide to embedded and networked programming. Really accessible too. Highly Recommended!

(Possibly going to have to shell out for a few copies for +Farset Labs  .... Maybe an IoT hackathon?)

Ok, this looks pretty awesome for anyone working with LaTeX, never mind the sharing bit, but the in-browser editing is very cool.
