Yeah, not prepping for launch. Desperate to save it.

Putting a totally unnecessary camera into Glass was its fatal flaw. Come out with a camera-free version that's truly a proper AR extension of the phone display and +Google Glass would have an instant hit.

Nobody ever asked for a crappy camera with even crappier battery life strapped to their heads.
 
Google Glass now available to anyone, may be prepping for public launch

I've updated the Colorado Ingress laser badge order forms to support the new L9-16 levels. Also, deluxe badges are BACK but with a twist. The buyer now sources and glues in their own Photon Freedom Micro Light (with covert nose). This should also work well for those of you with existing deluxe badges that have leveled up - just cut the light out of your old badge with a hobby knife and glue it into the new one.

Forensic Ballistics: How Apollo 12 Helped Solve the Skydiver Meteorite Mystery

The news went viral a couple of weeks ago. A team in Norway announced that a skydiver was almost struck by a meteorite in flight over the ØstreÆra airstrip near Rena, Norway. What can a 45-year-old mission to the Moon tell us about a "meteorite" flying past a skydiver on Earth?

Awesome engineering story.
Roman Mars’ podcast 99% Invisible covers design questions large and small, from his fascination with rebar to the history of slot machines to the great Los Angeles Red Car conspiracy. Here at the Eye, we cross-post new episodes and host excerpts from the 99% Invisible blog, which offers complementary visuals...

The gang all made it home from NoCal safe and sound. Southwest did give me a bit of crap about having three 50lb bags...

In addition to the front row bombers, there's also two whiskeys, a pear eau de vie, raspberry liquor, absinthe, and 6 Plinys. There's a story on those... Even in California, Pliny the Elder is becoming unobtainium. Out of stock everywhere and even the source, Russian River, now limits bottle sales to 2 per person.

Incredible. WAAAY better than I was expecting. Smooth with that awesome wheat mouthfeel and just the right amount of port in the finish.

Man, I sure hope Blichmann is kidding about the "patent pending" claim. This is a nearly exact copy of my Countertop Brutus 20 system, first published in BYO in November 2009 (http://byo.com/stories/projects-and-equipment/item/1933-countertop-brewing-system). And even my design is actually just a gravity fed derivative of the original Brutus 20 idea by Lonnie McAllister.

Bigtime fail John Blichmann, bigtime FAIL.

Introduction
Happily married for 25+ years. Never had kids (our gift to an already over-crowded planet), but we have lots of kittehs to share our little country spread with.

Why would you circle me? I brew beer. I ride motorcycles. I like to make things (especially electronics). I play Ingress (3d0g). Oh, and I quote The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy excessively.
