Nice AutoAwesome story from a build meeting with +teambrickbuddies a few weeks ago. They're +Elizabeth Adair's FIRST Tech Challenge team.

They're Tetrix, which is pretty similar to Actobotics but Actobotics adds a lot more mounting holes and is a little cheaper. 

They're pretty handy for building things with somewhat flexible spacing and that can be built with 90 or 45 degree joints but once you need any unusual geometry, you usually end up cutting and drilling. Then you shed a tear over watching the kids cut up $10-20 pieces of aluminum U-channel.

This Sunday afternoon, Makey (+Make:'s mascot) is stopping by Tampa Hackerspace. Come check out our free Kid's Open Make from 1-4 and enter a drawing for 10 free tickets to next weekend's +Maker Faire Orlando.

I figured out a whole new reason my Nexus 7 seems so slow lately. Google+ AutoBackup has been uploading every video (tv shows and movies) on the device like it's video I shot.

Interesting. Are the videos viewable online after they're uploaded?

The final statewide rankings for FIRST Tech Challenge came out today and +Brick Buddies is the #2 team in the state heading into next month's state championship. Really proud of all the hard work the kids put in and how their years of FIRST experience have shaped them.

Last month Elizabeth and I headed to Brickworld here in Tampa and helped run the Great Ball Contraption - a collection of LEGO machines that move balls around in interesting ways. +Brick Buddies basically spent the day keeping 30 or so Rube Goldberg style LEGO contraptions working. Exhausting but pretty neat to see.

It'll be interesting if different libraries start checking out devices like Chromebooks. I've checked out books that cost more, especially in college. 
 
The Chromebook Lending Library is coming to campus!

Chromebooks are college-bound. Borrow a Chromebook at the Lending Library to use for a few days on campus. #ChromebookforCollege

Huge new location. One of the biggest gaming stores I've seen. Lots of room to run multiple games at once, so Magic the Gathering players aren't wedged into every square inch of space, Warhammer players can have plenty of room, and still have space for a D&D or Pathfinder group and boardgames. There's also an eating area and even a spot to purchase food on-site.
