I've just sent a prototype of an +Arduino shield, to accompany +Kipp Bradford and my new book +Distributed Network Data, to #OSHPark for a short fab run to test the design.

Just shipped QC of the new book by +Alasdair Allan  and +Kipp Bradford to production! The ebook will be available on Tuesday, 2/26, with print shipping around 3/8.

If you liked what we did at the +Data Sensing Lab at +O'Reilly Strata and want to build and deploy your own environmental sensors, this book will teach you how. This is hardware hacking for data scientists!

Yay playing with +Arduino and +XBee :)

The video of the book of the lab...
 
A look behind the "data sensing lab" at the +O'Reilly Strata conference

Last fall, my colleagues +Alasdair Allan +Brian Jepson +Julie Steele +Rob Faludi and interested attendees at the Strata Conference put together a network of data sensors in the conference venue in New York City.

This video, featuring +Edd Dumbill and others, explain what they created using open source hardware and 3D printing. Distributed Environmental Data: On the Ground at the Data Sensing Lab

The video description, by +O'Reilly Media, provides more context and looks ahead to what's happening right now, around me.

_"Sensors are the future of distributed data. General-purpose computing is dissipating out into the environment and becoming increasingly invisible and embedded into our lives. We will soon begin to move in a sea of data, our movements tracked and our environments measured and adjusted to our preferences, without need for direct intervention.

At the Strata Conference in Santa Clara this February, we will observe and report on the conference once again, with more sensors, real-time visualization, and some new interactive features for attendees."_

The book of the lab is here. Just in time for the second +Data Sensing Lab at +O'Reilly Strata in Santa Clara, CA, next week...
 
The cover for my upcoming book +Distributed Network Data just came through from production. Looking good. Really pleased as this is my first non-iOS book and I'm excited about getting it out there...
