Might give this a go on my new +LulzBot when I've upgraded the extruder for flexible material.

Have you seen this +Erin RobotGrrl ?

My new +LulzBot​ Taz 4 came today. Really well thought out packaging and installation instructions, everything just works! First print finishing now (the inevitable octopus) and the quality is outstanding. It included all the tools you will ever need and a snazzy case to keep them in.

The Taz 4 is totally open source, which I found very useful for my Huxley, especially when it inevitably went wrong. Looking forward to mounting a second extruder once I've printed the parts.

Next day delivery from Amazon UK @ £1350. Not cheap, but you will spend more time on cheaper options, so you need to weigh up how much that time is worth.

Worth a read if only for the phrase "Toyota-blitzkrieg".
For a week now, we’ve been getting nonstop scare stories about Islamic State’s menacing advance on the Syrian Kurdish town of Kobani. And as far as it goes, the stories are true: Islamic State (IS)...

Simplicity takes time and design is an ongoing process.
 
A great story. Even something as simple as a connector for geodesic domes takes years of trial and error to evolve.
How it took two degrees in design and six years of development for me to create a rubber hexagon with holes in it.

A branding guide for schools that have "Gone Google"? Yuck!

+Google for Education​ are generally doing a great job, but they need to reign in their marketing department.
 
Congrats - You've #goneGoogle! Now what? 

Here's a branding guide filled with advice that other schools have shared and best practices around how to announce that your school has made the move to Google. goo.gl/5Ne99G

A terrific short by Asimov about creativity. Although it is nominally about facilitating collaboration, it is clear that Asimov believed creativity comes from individuals working in isolation. This is in opposition to the current prevailing view, which is that it takes more than one person to invent great things.

"I mean, FFS, folks aren’t immunizing their children against polio or measles but we’re gonna close schools because of Ebola?!”
 
For the second week in a row, I am compelled to open my round-up of education-related stories with news of ongoing harassment and threats against women in technology. This week, it's a look at #Gamergate, which has been going on for months now, but this week escalated to new levels.
