John Donovan posted about two of my previous posts.  I wasn't happy with the way those two posts turned out, so here is a better one that, in my opinion, supersedes the previous two.

The basic idea here is to explain how to take textbook equations and turn them into reusable Modelica component models.  It could be useful in explaining Modelica to those who are new to it.  Even for people who know Modelica, I think it is an interesting model to explore and all the source code is available on GitHub.

If you don't know who Aaron Swartz was, he was a young (26 years old) internet whiz kid who was authoring internet standards when he was 14 years old. He is one of the key people who organized the "Stop SOPA" campaign to keep the internet free. He committed suicide a few days ago as a result of the US government's attempts to make an example out of him.

If you are as outraged about this as I am, you might consider signing these petitions to the White House:

I couldn't resist taking my discussion of kinematic clutches to the next logical level...

I don't use Google+ much, but I'm impressed by the improvements Google has made. The UI is pretty flashy and decidedly unGoogle like. But one thing is driving me crazy with the iPad app, where the f#%k are my "circles". I mean how crazy is it that this social network doesn't actually allow me to see much less edit who my friends are?!?!

What am I missing here?

Funny, I've been posting links to these two articles in various places today and somehow it slipped my mind to put them HERE!  Doh!

Here are some articles I wrote on clutch modeling for my company blog...
