By David Talbot, MIT Technology Review “This summer a Minnesota startup began deploying an autonomous robot that rolls between corn plants spraying crop fertilizer. The robot applies fertilizer while the plant is rapidly growing and needs it most. This eliminates the need for using tractors, which can damage the high stalks, and reduces the amount …

I have reflector and it doesn't work with GoTo Meeting.  Is this a similar solution so will have the same problem?  I found that it drops periodically but also importantly the bezel doesn't show.

Looks like MN First is looking for Volunteers 06-Mar - 08-Mar-2014 for their Lake Superior Regional and Northern Lights Regional events.  I'm in Florida over that time but may consider getting involved if you aren't already.

Hey all, this was Duluth MakerSpace's best interview from the big 3 media here in Duluth. SLS has been less active mainly focusing to get DMS up and running and see where we'll fit in to the Duluth Makerspace piece.  We have DNT coming by Wednesday for our Make Night. Feel free to come by, fisit the site (www.DuluthMakerSpace.com) and get involved anyway you like!
Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- It's a hands-on kind of thing.<br />There is a growing movement of community workshops that have been sprouting up around the country, that have people returning to making items by hand.<br />Now there is a space in Duluth that is dedicated to just that... and it's just had its first open house.

Things are coming together. Come and help create Duluth's Makerspace! This Tuesday 09/16 starting at 5pm @ 3001 West Superior Street. If you can't be there, start thinking of names because we will finalize it then. We need to start cleaning, build a website, start learning all our skill sets and needs... eat pizza, have a beer... and that's just a start. 
sign up here so we know how many will be there.

+Jennifer Rosato Have you seen this and/or have opportunity to get your efforts in front of Google's funding for your efforts?  http://www.businessinsider.com/google-made-with-code-project-2014-6

I saw it in the news yesterday. Google has funded our K-12 teacher professional development efforts, in part because we include pedagogical strategies for supporting women (and other underrepresented groups). Both East and Denfeld are offering new high school Computer Science Principles class and could use Android phones. I'll have to see if there's some way they can use this program to purchase some of them.

Duluth Coffee just dashed out to feed the meter for my car parked in front of their business. Quote from Eric Faust (Owner), "We want customers to know that you don't get parking tickets if you park in front of Duluth Coffee Company". Now that is customer service. Next time, I'm bringing a roll of quarters for you guys. -Russ Kurhajetz, extremely satisfied customer.

I swung in on Saturday with my 5 year old and newborn. Clint Agar the owner greeted me with a smile asking if there is anything specific I was looking for. I ran a little in the past and want to get back into it this year so wanted to get the right gear, new shoes and watch for timing with HRM. Clint spent a good 1.5 hours with me trying on shoes, hitting the treadmill, Andrea (co-owner) helped hold my newborn while we did this, then they let me change his diaper in the store. This is a great store, with great prices, and great people. They didn't just push me into the most expensive gear, he quoted current journal articles, running philosophy and showed me why each of the shoes we tried on could make sense for me. I joined their training club and look forward to learning more about fixing my form so I can enjoy running for years to come. They'll be getting all my business.
