I'll be in Germany for all of May giving workshops at any hackerspace, library, or any other cool org, that is interested. Is your space interested? Please let me know!  There's still possibly a few open dates.

Feel free to let others know -- I'd love to fill up my entire month with workshops to help spaces all over Germany!

I just found out about a secretly shot 10-minute sci-fi film, The Sand Storm staring Ai Wei Wei. Looks awesomely beautiful. Their Kickstarter will get the movie into the world. I just backed it. Maybe you would like to?

Not nonprofit? Not decentralized? Maybe not really innovating...

This is the most thoughtful and relevant article I've read yet about tech in San Francisco, the social problems it inevitably causes, and its context within US culture -- written by Laurie Penni (with a bit-part interview with me):

Please consider helping my friend Sylwester's IndieGoGo for his open source "Cumulous" project.  14 hours remaining, and €449 to go!  Anyone in the world can contribute.

It's a low-cost, low-power wireless home automation solution, using Raspberry Pi (but Arduino compatible) for monitoring sensors and triggering whatever you like.

When did Arduino become "Aduino" (both written and voiced over) ?

Nice idea though, a step further than the open APIs the closed source vendors have started doing now.
