Hello!  I am learning sign as I have several friends who are signers.  I'd like to be able to communicate with them.  Is anyone interested in a hangout?

Many thanks to +Ethan Chew for organizing the ISDC panel on makerspaces and space exploration.  And for inviting Mach 30 to participate.  He ran the panel using Google+ Hangouts On Air, so you can watch the video below if you could not make it in person.

Makerspaces have been a rising phenomenon worldwide. They are community-operated physical places, where people can meet and work on their projects. Referencing the map at hackerspaces.org (http://hackerspaces.org/wiki/List_of_Hacker_Spaces), one can find a makerspace nearby to themselves. With the increasing availability of aerospace technology and scientific equipment, makerspaces have been engaging in space-based projects ranging from the development of launchers and spacesuits to research in planetary science, space education and promotion and sponsorship of makerspace-based space projects. We will be presenting a Q&A panel of experts at the International Space Development Conference in San Diego who currently work in these projects to discuss makerspaces and their space activities.

Amazingly good actor, and even better person:

“Our house was small, and when you grow up with domestic violence in a confined space you learn to gauge, very precisely, the temperature of situations. I knew exactly when the shouting was done and a hand was about to be raised – I also knew exactly when to insert a small body between the fist and her face, a skill no child should ever have to learn. Curiously, I never felt fear for myself and he never struck me, an odd moral imposition that would not allow him to strike a child. The situation was barely tolerable: I witnessed terrible things, which I knew were wrong, but there was nowhere to go for help. Worse, there were those who condoned the abuse. I heard police or ambulancemen, standing in our house, say, “She must have provoked him,” or, “Mrs Stewart, it takes two to make a fight.” They had no idea. The truth is my mother did nothing to deserve the violence she endured. She did not provoke my father, and even if she had, violence is an unacceptable way of dealing with conflict. Violence is a choice a man makes and he alone is responsible for it.” Patrick Stewart
