Another Kickstarter, this one ends in a day and a half. They're almost there and need a little boost, I think they deserve it:

Hey all, a couple of my friends launched a cool swarmbot kickstarter on Tuesday, it's worth checking out:

Hey everyone, there's another Kickstarter I think is worth funding, especially if you're interested in learning basic robotics. I know the people running this one, they're MIT alumni and really awesome people. As always, any pledge amount helps. If you want to give them more money than a pledge level and don't want to actually take the course (they're very interested in getting students through the robot arm kit levels), you can pledge however much you feel like and just select the pledge level you want. They're on track to make their goal, but I wanted to spread the word a little more.

They're also the first Kickstarter project I've seen that's posted screenshots of the backend, which is fun. Check their first update to see some of what the dashboard for running a project looks like.

Here's another Kickstarter I think is worth pitching, it's by the same people who made Myst, Riven (sequel to Myst), and Myst V: End of Ages (the last in the Myst series), and several other games. It's another gamein the spirit of Myst, and looks beautiful. I'm really hoping it gets funded so I'll get a chance to play it. They're very near their goal and have four days left, it'll be a squeeze.

I spent last Monday evening & night in SF for the first time and took a lot of pictures. This one stood out while I was reviewing them so I decided to upload it ahead of the others. More to come, along with higher resolution versions on my Flickr.

Keeping up with going through pictures takes longer than catching up on email.

Anyway, here's some stuff from around my yard right after I got my camera.
