Adafruit's engineer, Limor "ladyada" Fried interviews Digikey CEO Dave Doherty.

In this video Adafruit Founder Limor Fried interviews Dave Doherty on topics ranging from the death of the physical catalogue, to the joy of running an engineering company as an engineer yourself.

Adafruit is proud to partner with Digi-key and introduce Maker.io to all our customers and fans. This kicks off Adafruit's video series Maker to Market, which will take you on the journey that was the creation of Circuit Playground, Adafruit's all-in-one board — the perfect microcontroller for learning electronics.

Debate: Who Was The Best Star Trek Engineer? #SciFiSunday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/07/24/debate-who-was-the-best-star-trek-engineer-scifisunday/

The folks over at Popular Science take sides on a question that has long divided trekkies.

Sarah: I’m going to say my favorite engineer, as a person, is O’Brien because you just get to know him so much better in DS9. You see his family life, his relationship with his wife and his daughter. But I think Geordi is the best engineer because he’s doing like crazy physics and weird experiments and inventing new things.

Citizen Scientist Divers Collecting Data on Ocean Temperatures
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/07/22/citizen-scientist-divers-collecting-data-on-ocean-temperatures/

From The Guardian:

Millions of holidaying scuba divers are able to become citizen scientists and take vital measurements of ocean temperatures, which are being driven up by climate change…

Kieran Hyder at Cefas [Centre for Environment, Fisheries, and Acquaculture Science, located in Scotland] who led the citizen science project, said: “To undertake a global science programme that could generate this information would be hugely expensive, but there are millions of sport and commercial dives every year. Making use of just a small fraction of those dives will greatly increase our knowledge of what is happening worldwide.

What We’re Learning from the World’s Oldest Calculator
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/07/23/what-were-learning-from-the-worlds-oldest-calculator/

Fascinating article, via the conversation

When we talk of the history of computers, most of us will refer to the evolution of the modern digital desktop PC, charting the decades-long developments by the likes of Apple and Microsoft. What many don’t consider, however, is that computers have been around much longer. In fact, they date back millennia, to a time when they were analogue creations.
