"When we click the arrow on the top-right we are taken to the story screen"
Whoa, totally did not expect that. Really odd.

Using video projection with a Guitar Hero-style display to help people learn piano. So cool
Piano projections help you play a tune

Yay! Read the readings for Sessions 1 & 2.

The first reading was the best, though.

It does remind me of how I fell in love with math at an early age. Compared to the rest of the subjects it was just so much more fun. You got tools to play with and you could figure out new ways to use them. Compared to that, the rest of the subjects were so boring and static in comparison. The only other thing that came close were the English classes and Photo classes that came later on.

But history? Oh, I hated history. It was all rote memorization of Things That Happened. Or, more accurately, how one person thinks things happened from his (usually a he) point of view. It was good to know, but what could you do with it in the present moment? Not much.

Anyway, back to math. I loved to geek out about formulas and methods and hang out with the other nerds. This continued all the way up through college and then... nothing. No more math for me. I started writing about videogames of all things. But playing with words and finding new ways of expressing ideas to people became a new challenge. It was math all over again.

I like history better now, though.

Looks like this G+ group stopped soon after it started. I found the emails to be not very straightforward at all and I kept filing them away in the folder of "When I Have Time I Will Make Sense of That" which I'm just going through now. It was right after playing with Arduino for the first time and researching the Raspberry Pi (adafruit order is in!).

Anyway, if anyone's still into this I guess I'll be going through the readings for Week 2 to try and catch up.

I've been casually dis and re-engaging with this one. My rendition of Gears of my Childhood is sitting nearly done, interrupted by a plumbing leak in the ceiling of my kitchen:)

Thanks for engaging here. A nice reminder that the experience should be worth it.

Nice shots, but please don't go flying over highways like that. A battery disconnect or a motor failure and you'll drop right down.

Neighborhood 3D Printing Store Opens in Oakland

MakerBot has a retail store in Manhattan. And UPS is testing in-store 3DPrinting services in five locations. But how many neighborhoods or Main Streets have a small-biz, 3D printing/digital fabrication retail store? One that not only prints but teaches classes and sells printers?

The answer is… not very many. According to MAKE contributing editor, Anna Kaziunas France, there is Deezmaker in Pasadena; The Color Company and iMakr in London; The 3D Printing Store in Denver; and the GetPrinting3D Retail Store in Evanston.

As of yesterday, HoneyBee3D in the Montclair district of Oakland, Calif. can be added to this list. Husband and wife team Liza Wallach and Nick Kloski are offering classes, printing, rapid prototyping, and they are a distributor for TypeA Machines.
