I recently wrote a brief article called 5 Things We Learned From Running Our Own Makerspaces, with tips for operating a k-12 educational makerspace. https://bsd.education/5-things-we-learned-from-running-our-own-makerspaces/
The End of Maker Faire... I have been seeing this come for a while, especially after failure to meet the demands of customers. It's sad, but also freeing of the term "maker". Maker Faire has influenced the last 10 years of my life, but in the last 2 years, I distanced because of the corporate feel of it all. I definitely prefer the more community-based hacker groups and FabLabs that will continue to thrive after this.
So... It's time for me to get a new laptop. Feeling done with Apple.
I have narrowed down my choices to 2 options: Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon vs Huawei Matebook x Pro
Any thoughts or suggestions? Will be installing KDE
I have started a new project called Sunday with Seymour where I watch a video or read an article about the Constructionst Learning Theory creator, Seymour Papert and related ideas. Each week I will share thoughts and have even started an open forum for discussion for others to join.
I have been publishing on Medium for a couple of years, thinking of switching to Jeckyll. Any one else using Jeckyll to blog? Is it easy to setup?
Been thinking about ethics and technology (especially with AI) and how ethics could be better taught in schools. Starting with the idea of singularity. Currently reading this manifesto by Joichi Ito. Great quote here:
