3d printing walking robot.
 
A robot walks around and does #3dprinting  as it goes. Seriously neat technology. Now we just need to get them to swarm ...

Yup. No excuse for snoops though.

Publishing in the sense you never knew where it would end up anyway. With forwarding, lists and whatnot. 

That awareness, that it's not 'just you and me mailing' is not the same as having 'no expectation of privacy' though. But my perception of privacy (as something your community gives you) might differ from others.

Ultimaker heeft afgelopen week een nieuwe versie van hun printer gelanceerd (tijdens bijeenkomsten in NYC, Manchester en Berlijn). Wat in de pers erover niet echt genoemd wordt maar volgens mij wel significant is: de printer is bedoeld voor de 'gewone consument', d.w.z. je koopt hem kant en klaar en het gebruik ervan is vereenvoudigd en makkelijker gemaakt. Tegelijkertijd is er een platform gelanceerd om ontwerpen te delen op https://www.youmagine.com/ (waar als ik het goed heb begrepen het ook mogelijk is om varianten etc. makkelijk toe te voegen.)

(disclosure: mijn zwager is mede-oprichter van Ultimaker. Dit is echter niet als promo bedoeld.)

+Rinus van Weert, tip : Ga desgewenst eens op bezoek bij FabLab Maastricht, zij hebben momenteel een 3D Builder ter test staan en hebben veel ervaring met vele betaalbare modellen, vooralsnog blijken de beide UP! 's (commerciële, 'gesloten' modellen) het meest betrouwbaar begreep ik onlangs > http://fablabmaastricht.nl/3d-printers-maak-ook-het-onmogelijke

When afraid all is a threat. When your methods don't work use the same methods more obsessively. It is all a deeply human response and utterly predictable because of it in that sense. It also a symptom however of systems becoming brittle and crumbling.

A sympathetic project to redo e-mail. By Smari and other Icelandic coders.

Indeed, I think for the willing it will be an incentive, for the unwilling not much of a push.
 
The new PSI Directive, as good as it seems ?
Nice analysis by +Ton Zijlstra and Katleen Janssen. In my line of work we were a bit dissapointed by the "exceptions", they leave too much room in my view. At the same time it's good that with regard to the "exceptions" is formulated:  "..How costs are structured and determined, and used to motivate standard charges, needs to be pre-established and published..."
We can maybe try to use this to make the cost structure of some government agencies more transparant. At this time they sometimes they only need to publish their tariffs and some very global figures about costs.

Making sense of complexity and change.
Introduction
I consider myself to be a networked individual, working in a networked world. I spend my time with different groups in different settings, but on topics that feel very much connected, at least to me. They feel connected because whatever it is I am doing, I am always passionate about increasing people's ability to act (my working definition of knowledge), and increasing their ability to change (my working definition of learning).

We had a very pleasant 3 day stay. Hotel is located in a quiet area (small park) right at the river, and we enjoyed walking along the river to the old city centre (45 mins). The hotel bar looked promising and welcoming, until we realized it is the designated smoking area of the hotel. We did enjoy the restaurant though. Our room (junior suite) was spacious with good facilities. Staff were friendly, welcoming and service oriented.
