Hey Android/WP friends! Your phone probably has wireless charging. If it does, this $9 pad is perfect for your nightstand or desk. Did I mention how cheap it is?

Galaxy S3/Note2 and later
HTC One
Nokia Lumia 920
Nexus 4/5
Nexus 7, 2013 ed.
Some others I'm sure

iPhone friends, you need a Qi case, and then you can play too.

The ride home today was interrupted by a medical emergency.

I'm concerned, as there seems to be more of those than usual lately.

Along the lines of yesterday (same company, even), this is a direct messaging app that uses bluetooth mesh to route messages. I wonder though when it'll work across Android and iOS...

This is actually really cool - building an open mesh network of devices over Bluetooth in order to share internet connections. I can see this being the core of some great applications.
Open Garden shares Internet connections between laptops, tablets and phones...

My only complaint about the Google busses is that if Google Engineers no longer have to take Bart (and have unreliable internet), all their apps will have lousy offline modes.

No longer their pain, no longer their problem.

Was doing some late-night sewing and my new sewing machine popped up an alert.

I was told my bobbin was empty BEFORE sewing several feet without half the thread. This is why I heart you, new machine.

+Kim Brunner  - this machine is a fully automated embroidery machine. Doing that by hand is a pain! Little stuff like recommending stitch length based on material weight and style (for example, medium knits vs lightweight stretch) is nice because it doesn't require everyone who wants to sew to be an expert from the start.

Computerized machines lower the barrier to many people who don't have an expert at their disposal.

It works! I can play songs from Google's Play Music directly to Sonos.

Now, I wonder if Sonos will get my Play Music account directly as a music source? I'd love to be less manual.

Anyone out there with Windows 8.1 / XBOX One want a beta invite to Project Spark? I've got four!

It's a sandbox / world building game. It's in beta, but pretty cool nonetheless. Last night I made a little forest world where you play a giant squirrel, who had to run around and kill a bunch of trolls. Kinda fun.

There are always new skills to be learned, new crafts to hone, and new things to be done.
Introduction
My name is Brad Hubbard. Throughout my career, my enthusiasm for technology has taken me on an amazing journey. I've managed telecommunications hardware and software product lines, written and launched my own web and mobile applications, and scoped and architected hundreds of technology projects. I have a passion for tackling interesting problems, and collaborating with driven people to build great things. Right now I'm taking on social and big data at DataSift. 

In my free time, I play with leather, swords, and lights.

Some of the best burgers in town. The Old Town location is the only one with chili (and chili dogs). Also, the Swiss cheese makes for a much better burger than the standard "cheddar"

These guys have a weekly deal called "Taco Tuesday" where you can get two tacos for $3, and two Pacificos for $3.50. It's nice, because getting two and two comes out to exactly $7. It's become a tradition with my friends, and the food is quite good. Carnitas has some kick to it, and the chile verde is awesome.
