+Will Robinson +Brian "Fitz" Fitzpatrick Will and I were working on a web application to query City of Chicago data by address, but unfortunately we both needed to leave the hackathon, so here it is in case anyone else wants to pick it up.

Okay, finally got around to cleaning this up and deploying it:

+Daniel Sinker, feel free to use any of this that seems useful. I'm probably not going to do much more work with it (can't speak for +Will Robinson). Let me know if you have questions -- it's fairly straightforward JSON/Python, but not many comments.

As a software guy, doing this kind of thing makes me way happier than it should.

I've met a few folks from PS:1 and we are viciously competing with them in the upcoming Power Wheels race at Maker Faire: Detroit. :) From all i have seen, they are doing really well. I lurk on their list and they are doing some cool stuff.

The train dashboard sounds awesome!

I ordered a Breville BCG800XL to go with my Gaggia Classic, but it's on backorder and now I'm having second thoughts. Anyone have opinions about burr grinders? I generally only make two double-shots at a time, so I think a doser will just get in the way, but grinding directly into my portafilter is essential.

Yeah, BCG800XL is a conical burr so I think I should be okay. It'll be here next week, I'll let you know how it goes.

Schematics posted on the inside of an electric organ I found in my parents' basement. Apparently all hardware used to be open-source hardware.
