Thrilled to announce that I was accepted to start a PhD program at Chiang Mai University!
I will be studying at a special lab called the Learning Inventions Lab while studying and researching constructionism in k-12 education with electronics and robotics.

@ansugeisler The fan never speeds up, just stays a constant low speed

I was using Kazam to do some screen recording and noticed my laptop heating up. Cores were hitting 60 degrees Celsius. Turns out I have no way of controlling my fan. I tried sensor config and pwm-config. Says I have no pwm-capable sensor modules installed and now im lost Huawei Matebook Pro

Thinking of teaching AI in the classroom? Here is my latest article about it and what we have been doing at BSD Education to prepare teachers.

Made the hike up towards Doi Suthep this morning in Chiang Mai to pay respects to my Aunt who passed away earlier this week. Wat Phra Lat is a beautiful place at 7 am when the rays of sun peirce through the jungle, illuminating the Buddha inside.

Good morning, friends,

I am attempting to acquire a full class set of Raspberry Pi computers for my class.

This Donors Choose project is for Pi #6. If you have a dollar or two to help out, I'd greatly appreciate it.

The kids and @EccentricElephant made this awesome Autumn themed art in homeschooling this week. They repurposed an old painting, dried leaves, wrote poetry and even used papier mache to fill the border. They always amaze me with their cool homeschooling projects.

I may have to give you a shout if I run into any issues.

Thanks, next on my list is giving Ardour a try.

@bluebirch Thanks! It is a cumbersome process, but I was determined to keep trying until I figured it out. Still alot to learn, but its the fun of making something new work.

Been wanting to hook up my external MIDI keyboard and play, but haven't done so since I switched to Ubuntu. Finally got it working but had to install JACK Audio, Qsynth, and then VMPQ virtual piano, plus lots of config and soundfont downloads.

Here is a screenshot of all 3 apps needed just to play my MIDI keyboard. Glad to finally be playing again. Now if I could just figure out how to use Piano Booster.

Haha, maybe I will grow out my hair like that. 😆

@codewiz I can see the Emoji in Firefox, but not Ubuntu. I do not have the noto-color-emoji pack though. Will try that. -thannks

Late night working on AI curriculum and I decide to test a Shakespeare sample on a Natural Language Processor to show how language has evolved over time and came up with this graphic to go along with the lesson 😂
Shakespeare as a modern AI linguistics researcher, experimenting with NLP.

@codewiz Get a grant from Mozilla and Creative Commons to work on something cool and then quit your job 😎

Classroom Donations for a Raspberry Pi 

I currently have 4 Raspberry Pi computers that my students use daily. Would anyone like to help me increase that to 5 via Donors Choose?

Wow, this is a well put together docu-series on data, privacy and the state of the internet with Jaron Lanier.

@tootbrute Its on my list, but I have a few others to read before getting a copy. I try not to buy new books until current books are finished.
