An army group in Turkey says it has taken control of the country, as bridges are closed in Istanbul and aircraft fly low over Ankara.

E. coli in flour? If this is true, it does not bode well.

Boosting the signal.
 
Flour recall. Because I seem to know a lot of bakers.

I just discovered this website at the nexus of string, thingmaking, robotics, education, and coding. So fascinating, with nods to tablet weaving, the warp-weighted loom, and more!

As a finale to the weavingcodes project we are running a series ofTanglebot workshops for all ages to provide a messy introduction into weaving, robotics and coding along with the artifacts and discoveries we’ve made on this project. Tanglebots are prototype/failed weaving robots (weaving is quite hard as we’ve discovered, so we are starting with tangles and seeing what patterns emerge).

I've got the cheapass Fire tablet. ($35 at Christmas) but all I use it for is games and ebooks. No email, no browsing.

Michael Twitty's incandescent essay on being intersectionally gay knocked my socks off.  It is not an easy read, but it is a rewarding one.

I don’t write often on here about my sexual orientation because this blog focuses on my journeys through African American food history. I came out when I was 16 years old in my school newspa…

This is so mesmerizing!  It's an enhanced live take on Gustav Klimt's painting, Portrait of Adele Bloch Bauer I. 

I'm not entirely sure what I'm looking at here.  Cosplay plus stop motion plus photoshopping, I guess?  The combination of effects situates the work pretty close to my uncanny valley.  Still, it's so gorgeously realized that I'm watching it anyway.

Judging from her wrists, hands and shape of her head, I'd say that is computer animation.

Excerpt from the newly updated Terms of Service for the Sky Map app:

Sky Map comes with no warranties!  If you choose it to navigate the high seas and you hit an iceberg, it's your responsibility.  If you tell your kids that the bright thing in the sky is Jupiter and it turns out to be a UFO and you are subsequently kidnapped by aliens -- not our responsibility.  If your kids subsequently fail their science homework -- not our responsibility.  If it wipes all the data in your phone, including the photos of the UFO that were going to make you rich -- not our responsibility.  If it causes your phone to tear a hole in the fabric of space and time, OK -- that one is on us.  Any other calamities not listed above -- not our responsibility.  Don't use it while driving or carrying scissors.

I love this app and am thrilled it's been updated.
