I just attended a Google IO16 talk about VR from with in AltspaceVR. I loved it. It was great sitting around afterward and chatting with others about the content. There were a few loud breathers that could be easily blocked. And at the very start someone started petting me. An admin kicked the knuckleheads out after a warning. All in all I'll definitely watch more talks this way.

This is how I learned the hard way to stain wood parts BEFORE assembly. 110 bottles 2 feet off the ground.

"Punk rock is the best form of music.  It just is." -- Fat Mike 

Great quote, nice interview.  Oh and it was a hypothetical question, the other kind of question that is.

I can't go to space, but my name can.
Send Your Name to Mars on InSight at http://go.usa.gov/3Aj3G and retrieve your frequent flyer points on NASA's Journey to Mars.

Be careful what OTG USB adapter you buy for your Raspberry pi zero. Right angle ones can be problematic and can block the power port.

After thinking about it a while. I can power the RPi0 over the GPIO pins as long as it's a clean 5v. Which means I can finish the prototype VR Camera before Christmas!

My favorite recent one was simply "FUCK DOUGLAS".  Every programmer has already or will work with a "DOUGLAS" someday.

Magic Leap says it will begin making it's AR headset soon. Call me skeptical... They still haven't shown what the thing looks like.  They only opened up to outside developers in June. Hopefully it has a bigger field of view than the current Hololens prototype by Microsoft. But after their stupid marketing "astronaut dance party" at TED I don't have much faith. Anything that needs to be marketed so hard before it can be presented to people has issues. http://www.engadget.com/2015/10/20/magic-leap-wsjdlive/

Great! I now want to build/grow a mycelium "foam" glider.  I wonder if the 3D printers at i3 can use that wood based filament.  It'd be fun to make a mushroom ladder if I would grow stuff as strong as they claim.
