The App: from Killer to Mother

Wed, 16 Mar 2016 13:40:04 +0000

The Wikipedia defines “Killer App” as a marketing term for “any computer program that is so necessary or desirable that it proves the core value of some larger technology.” Not surprising that the term comes from marketing, that branch of business devoted to competing for customers and trying to kill off the competition. But if […]

Current-see and Death Straight Talk

Tue, 16 Feb 2016 15:28:50 +0000

I haven’t written much lately, I guess I’ve been busy… mostly with two things: Cancer & Ceptr. Currently, my time is about living with a spouse with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer and all that it takes to support her as well I can. My work is about building tools for a post-monetary society; creating […]

Behold, the magpi…

Tue, 25 Mar 2014 18:56:09 +0000

And, YAAP (Yet Another Arduino Project), the Micro Arduino Gaming Platform Interface. Finally I’ve done the “shareable value” part of putting together an instructables for how to make the retro-game controller I built for (and with) Will for Christmas. I love this video of Will demoing it:

Das Blinken Bonken!

Tue, 07 Jan 2014 14:23:31 +0000

Seems like end of the year is DYI electronics projects time for me as the Sound Alarm happened round this time last year too.  Well, I’ve been having a ball making Arduino stuff, this time as Christmas presents.  This time I got my documentation act together even more and made a construction tutorial on instructables […]

Arduino Sound Alarm

Thu, 06 Dec 2012 04:23:19 +0000

I’ve just completed my second Arduino project, a sound level detector which sets off an “alarm” when there’s the sound level is to high for too long.  I built it for use in a school that wants to provide visual feedback to students when they are being too loud.  The “alarm” is a string of […]

Blackout Strike

Wed, 18 Jan 2012 01:51:30 +0000

I’m not much of a guy for protesting.  But SOPA & PIPA are absolutely nuts.  They are terrible implementations of worse ideas.  So I’m joining the strike.  This blog will be down tomorrow.  I know I don’t get much traffic, but that’s not the point.  I must publicly stand against the moves of entrenched power to […]

On Voles and Openings

Tue, 03 Jan 2012 16:27:51 +0000

I just signed up for Edgeryders and completed my first mission, which is to “share your ryde.”  This provided me with an end-of-year opportunity to think about and document where I’ve been over the past years, so I’m reposting that “mission” here: I’ll start the story of my Ryde by quoting my first blog post […]

An Occupy plan, money and free speech.

Thu, 08 Dec 2011 02:22:09 +0000

I just read this interesting “plan” put forward by the Occupy “Working Group on the 99% Declaration.” Notice that ten out of twenty-two of the suggested grievances are either directly or indirectly about money.  Hmmm.  Interesting indicator of where the problem is.  It’s fascinating to me how stuck we are with the idea that such grievances […]

Paul Krafel on Occupy and economic equality

Mon, 05 Dec 2011 18:03:28 +0000

One of my heros is Paul Krafel, author of the book Seeing Nature, and short video, The Upward Spiral.  In his recent newsletter he has this to say about economic equality: One of the main issues of the Occupy movement is economic inequality. Whenever I think about it, I keep coming back to my watershed […]

clojurescript syntax hilighting in emacs

Fri, 16 Sep 2011 14:02:32 +0000

To get emacs to syntax color clojurescript files (cljs) add this to your .emacs (or other emacs config file): (setq auto-mode-alist (cons '("\.cljs" . clojure-mode) auto-mode-alist))
