Thanks to +Josh Glover for arranging a weekday TLUG Stockholm Chapter meeting during my recent visit to his fair city. Good to catch up. I find myself a little envious of Josh's mobility, but it sounds like he has planted roots in Sweden.

(Admittedly not everyone in the photo is a current TLUG member.)

The MozOpenHard project is developing an RK3066 board designed to run FirefoxOS to build a Web of Things (WoT)... putting web technologies everywhere, including at the edges.

I think it is still a nascent effort. Mozilla Japan is planning a "work week" in May.

I've also read the "browser robotics" ideas from the W3C community on GPIO and I2C interfaces.

RFSPACE has announced they are discontinuing the venerable SDR-IQ, citing difficulty in obtaining obsolete parts for the next production run.

They are promising a Cloud-IQ that is a lite version of their (not yet available?) CloudSDR receiver that will cover 9KHz to 56MHz.

Panasonic Wild Knights over Yamaha Jublio in the Lixil Cup at Chichibunomia Rugby Stadium. The game got off to an exciting start with Yamaha forgoing a chip shot penalty in favor of a maul try followed shortly afterwards by a nice kick-and-chase try from Panasonic, but after the first 20 minutes it was rather uninspired rugby. The second half was messy, and scoreless until the final 3.5 minutes.
