It is not your 8-5 work that determines your success in life. It's what you choose to do in those hours that follow. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/after-work-what-determines-your-future-spend-one-hour-sundaram
You finish work at 6 pm, go to bed at 12 midnight. Within these six hours, how do you spend them? Watching TV? In fact, the activities you do between 6 am and 12 midnight, the importance of it is

So with Window Anniversary Edition Edge is more prevalent than ever. I think it's weird that in a decade there will be devs referencing IE jokes and not getting them. Kinda like Star Wars fans trying to talk with Star Trek fans ;)

I read two things into this.
1. Tangible computing is becoming an agreed upon standard for teaching logic to young children who otherwise couldn't read / write.
2. The raspberry pi HAT standard is becoming as prevalent as Arduino's pinout. I've seen two major companies adopt this standard (Motorola and Google, yes they are different companies now :) )
 
Google is developing an open source software and hardware platform, called Project Bloks. 
Project Bloks is creating a development platform for tangible programming, to help kids develop computational thinking through playful coding experiences.

Probably. But in your opinion what is Google's end game with this project?

Interesting model names? Sailfish and Marlin? being the biggest two open source firmwares for 3D printers. Wonder if there is a connection? http://www.androidpolice.com/2016/07/05/exclusive-this-is-what-the-2016-nexus-phones-sailfish-and-marlin-will-look-like/

Story
Tagline
Hacker, Web Developer, Husband, Father, and INTP
Introduction

Technology is my passion. I spent the last 10 years perfecting my skill as an IT/Developer/Hacker and it shows in the work that I do. From microcontrollers to UX, C++ to C#, and solder to product I have been able to utilize my skills in the enterprise world building and integrating systems that boggle the mind. I am known for my swiss-army knife like ability to switch between systems and languages without a hitch in production. I am truly a hacker and love what I do.

Most recently I have been writing a book about my exploits in hacking the Microsoft Xbox 360 sensor and am well known in several industries for my other hacks.
