In November a group of Chinese students and entrepreneurs and artists came to Noisebridge and other places in the Bay Area to see what they could learn and take home to help their lives and inspire others. They made a 3-minute video:

It's always too short a visit to Berlin. Heading now to the Berlin airport to go to San Francisco. First time I'll be home since February!

The cure of one of life's minor annoyances (if you use Skype on your mobile phone): text "/nobday" to anyone (this won't actually send anything) and you will no longer receive birthday notices for anyone. Magic!

My friend Star has a fundraiser for a fun way to teach electronics to people of all ages:

Exquisite printed circuit boards that bring to life Forrest Mims' vintage designs from "Getting Started in Electronics."

Since 50 people have made an early version of my ArduTouch music synthesizer kit at my workshops over the past 2 months, I've put this early version on my Github.

Early US hackerspace, still thriving, and still welcoming to all that follow Noisebridge's one rule: Be excellent to each other. Hundreds of cool geeky people visiting every week. Lots of cool people working and playing on lots of projects. Workshops and classes every day. Lots of tools. Always free.

I've bought thousands and thousands of stickers from Sticker Giant. They do great work. High quality. Decent price. And when they mess up (as everyone does from time to time), they take full responsibility for their mistakes, and take care of everything right away. I recommend them to anyone who wants stickers made. (And everyone should make cool stickers!)
