+Camdon Cady and I are going to the Dayton event for NodeBots. Should be a fun and educational day.

Guilty as charged. ;)
 
If you grew up watching the original trilogy over and over, odds are that these signs apply to you.

+Camdon Cady - think you might find this interesting.
 
This is the Asus Chromebit. It's a bit like the Google Chromecast—but it does more.

Assuming it comes in at under a hundred bucks, I'm pretty much sold.

+Matt Maier - thought you would be interested in the latest news from the MakerBot saga.
 
Just a few years ago, MakerBot was the darling of the Open Hardware community. Somehow, in the middle of a garage in Brooklyn, a trio of engineers and entrepreneurs became a modern-day Prometheus, capturing a burgeoning technology into a compact, easy to…

Now that I've had time to read through the Hackaday comments I realized that this is just more of the same. They want the community to contribute attention and ideas all over again. The Q&A is only useful for publicity. They already know what people think they should do because the community has public discussions.

Crazy. I remember getting bit by these problems when +Mach 30 was working with QueLab to launch a high altitude balloon.
 
So, you may have heard about a helium shortage. Turns out the problem isn't that the gas is floating up into the atmosphere. Nope, the problem is political.

Check this out. Crazy timing given our Sprint 1 review for Yavin - https://opendesignengine.net/boards/50/topics/980

I started a thread to discuss this over in Yavin's forums - https://opendesignengine.net/boards/50/topics/989
 
Amateur rocketry has been popular for ages, with designs ranging from small toy-scale model rockets to large-scale liquid fuel designs with steerable fins. A team out of Portland State works on some large-scale amateur rockets that can fly to very high…

Let's try to capture technical (engineering or legal) threads over on ODE since they could impact Yavin (even just by way of lessons learned).

That being said, I am highly amused by the coincidence. And I hope this is a sign that Hack-a-Day would be interested in Yavin once we get to a point that we can demo it on a test stand.
