Check out our new +O'Reilly Solid Podcast! We recorded the first episode in the manager's office of an old McDonald's at NASA's Ames Research Center. Our guest is Dennis Wingo of Skycorp Incorporated and director of the Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project, who talks about the extraordinary engineering that brought images of the moon back to earth in 1966--and the equally extraordinary engineering that has recovered those images starting in 2008.

I am the original founder of the project now known as the Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project.  I have a couple of recognitions in the links below.   Dennis Wingo is a liar a thief and a cheat.  He lied about nearly everything, he stole that project from me and never paid me the $10,000 he promised.  I attempted to sue him back in 2008 but I was told it would take $20,000 to do that. 

I have all the emails and notes of what happened.  If you are interested, let me know.

I am Mark Nelson.

+Renee DiResta and I visited the incredible Huaquangbei electronics markets in Shenzhen last summer. These are part of the extraordinary hardware ecosystem there—every kind of electronic component is available—and a trip to the markets is part of the prototyping process for both large and small electronics companies.

The barriers between Software and the physical world are falling.
- +Jon Bruner 

Register for the O'Reilly Solid Conference http://oreil.ly/1fne0rw 

Something big is happening at the intersection of software and hardware. O'Reilly Solid brings together the people and businesses accelerating the growth of a software-enhanced, networked physical world.

+Tim O'Reilly's thoughts on Android in cars...
 
Google Teams Up with GM, Honda and Audi to Bring Android to Cars

I'm intrigued but a bit skeptical about the newly announced initiative for an "Open Automotive Alliance" to bring Android to automobiles.  While I love the idea, there are two reasons I am reserving judgment:

1. The insatiable desire of vendors to "differentiate" on a standard platform, without thinking about what kinds of differentiation leads to real customer value.

2. The failure to understand that in today's world, it's not just about the software, but about data and services.

This point is brought home to me every day by my Tesla Model S. While I love the car, I'm incredibly disappointed by its implementation of Google Maps (for which I paid an additional $3000 or so for the "high tech package," without which navigation is disabled). The map display is awesome, especially the second turn-by-turn screen behind the steering wheel, and the directions are Google's.  But where does the traffic data come from?  Surely not from Google.  Any time I suspect there is traffic, I have to pull out my phone and use Google maps before I start, because Tesla's time estimates to destination are pathetically wrong.  Whatever data services they are using (or not using) to provide traffic estimates are completely useless.

In short, I hope that automakers don't add bells and whistles to differentiate themselves, while neglecting core services that customers really depend on.

Good thoughts, +Tim O'Reilly -- I'd take the 'consumer first' (rather than 'expanding capabilities' approach) a step further and say that automakers should be putting people in general first. The lead to follow here is Volvo's, with their goal of 'no people killed by Volvos by 2020.' The technology will follow the goal.

Secondly, there's the question of product lifecycles: we replace our electronics every year or two, and our cars once a decade (ballpark medians). There's a reason that the navigation screen on a 2004 Prius looks incredibly dated, while the rest of the car looks mid-life. Of course, this may be one of the automakers' goals: to get the consumer to think of the car as another piece of consumer electronics.

For now, I'll stick with Velcro on the dashboard next to the radio; it's been seamlessly upgraded through four generations (and eight devices) of phones in our family.

This is something that's been on my mind for a while: to the degree that there is such a thing as the "tech industry" or "tech sector," it's not what most people think it is.

Check out the conversation that Joi and I had a couple weeks ago about Solid and the way he's approaching manufacturing at the Media Lab!
 
"Manufacturing, Design, Hardware, and the Code that makes sense of it all",  +Joichi Ito & +Jon Bruner 

Joi Ito, +Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)  Media Lab director  talks with Jon Bruner, Editor-at-large. Co-chair of O'Reilly Solid about things like Agile A/B Testing for Hardware, the modular approach to manufacturing and innovation, and the idea that the current user interface for portable devices is really very narrow, and could be much more than the eye and finger that it currently is.
