One of the things that I've been busy with - +FreeBSD on +ARM v8 (more specifically #AArch64  ). It's good to get involved with different communities, brings much needed perspective and understanding to how you and others do things.

A somewhat late #caturday , the look on the pilot's face is priceless when he notices his extra passenger. 
 
I can barely watch this.

I'd have to say, the most amazing poutine I've ever had in Quebec was not at La Banquise, but across the street at Ma Poule Mouillee

After +Jakub Steiner, +Laurent Eschenauer was the one that convinced me to buy a drone. Sure I went for the cheaper and less camera friendly AR.Drone, but that enabled me to use Laurent's excellent WebFlight.

Looking forward to see what his new company come up with. 
 
We are building a flying camera that is safe for humans. It is the size & weight of a soccer ball, and moving parts are fully shielded. Here is another early 3D concept. What do you think ?
