Photospheres from HartRAO just outside Johannesburg. We spent a week at the Hartebeeshoek Radio Astronomy Observatory recently learning about Observational Techniques for Radio Astronomy.

Ahh so you upgraded when he did. I can't wait for that Photosphere of the cyclotron. Didn't even know we had a particle accelerator in South Africa

A Kickstarter we should ALL be pledging towards!

Trsst is a distributed secure blog platform for the open web - looks & feels like Twitter but is encrypted and anonymized and decentralized; and only you hold the keys. Every Trsst account is also a Bitcoin wallet, and works using a blog-chain, much like bitcoin's block-chain concept that ensures nobody has fudged with a transaction.

Only 3 days left to pledge on the Trsst Kickstarter!

A portion of the recording of yesterday's talk by #CoryDoctorow at #iWeek2013 is available for everyone's viewing pleasure! :) Here he talks specifically about the new e-ID cards for SA.
 
I attended some of the sessions at iWeek2013 (http://www.iweek.org.za/) this week. Great talk by Cory Doctorow on how "You can’t fix society by breaking the Internet". This clip below records Cory's insightful description of why biometric ID cards are a bad idea. Also got to have a brief chat with him during the tea break this morning.

Absolutely brilliant.

The way he reasons, and tells a story to paint a vivid picture of what is and what can be is a skill that very few people have mastered even partly as well as he has.

Boba Fett-Koek! :)

It is Alastair's birthday today and he is a fan of The Fett so I simply couldn't resist making him an awesomely geeky cake. The result was this Boba Fett Helmet cake!

Black Velvet and Strawberry cake layers separated by melted Bar One chocolate, coated in the same and then decorated with Fondant and edible powder painting techniques. 

The Rangefinder is the only inedible part of the cake and is a chopstick covered in painted fondant topped by an acrylic-painted cardboard box for maximum lightness.
