So I went to the Tinker.it course on Arduino today which was a interesting experience. The class was a small group of around 10 people with a mix of backgrounds. There were 3 guys from an Electrical Engineering degree which I thought was quite strange as surely they would know this stuff inside out but actually I did learn quite a lot for them as they were keen to press on with some complex stuff. I did manage to get processing interfacing with the Arduino kit which was my goal so now I am pretty happy to make some interesting projects with physical computing. I saved some videos of some of the sample projects and stuck them on Vimeo.
Interesting Woodworm cricket equipment ad which I thought was pretty striking. It was on a London Cab and really stood out, pretty crappy photo but you get the idea
This is what happens if you park the wrong way around in london!
I have been doing a lot of research at work recently and have had to adopt a lot of advanced search methods to get what I was looking for. In order to do this I returned to the search master Fravia and went through my notes and watched his lectures again to get back up to speed. The image above is from a lecture Fravia gave at Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication and it details his idea the only 1/3 of the web is indexed by search engines meaning that there is a huge amount of material on the web but is not accessible via search engines such as google & yahoo. I have included links to 3 of Fravia’s lectures if your feeling like you would like to learn how to search more effectivly!
Amazing new broadband from Be. This is pretty impressive as I’m getting 17meg download and around 2.5meg upload, and all this for £18 per month. It kind of makes a joke of any for my other previous providers such as Tiscalli, BT and NTL. They also have a referral programme so if you refer a customer you get 1 month free and the new customer also gets the 1st month free. If you manage to refer 24 customer you get broadband for life!
I have managed to move a few people over already and we got some lines at work too. Just another 20 or so to go!
