We have a talented team with diverse interests. We’d like to share are a few of the things that we found notable this past week.
Our open source fans were excited to see that Light Table reached the $300K mark in their Kickstarter initiative. What does this mean for them? Out of the gate Python support for this open-core IDE project.
Highlighted this week on the Different Work book was the Open Source Ecology group’s work on DIY fabrication of the basic machines that support civilization. On their website, the Open Source Ecology group describes themselves as: “a network of farmers, engineers, and supporters that for the last two years has been creating the Global Village Construction Set, an open source, low-cost, high performance technological platform that allows for the easy, DIY fabrication of the 50 different Industrial Machines that it takes to build a sustainable civilization with modern comforts. The GVCS lowers the barriers to entry into farming, building, and manufacturing and can be seen as a life-size Lego-like set of modular tools that can create entire economies, whether in rural Missouri, where the project was founded, in urban redevelopment, or in the developing world.”
Although released May 23rd we spent time playing on and recording with this doodle this week. Its just plain cool.
We tweeted this out earlier this week but a team member found it so notable that we thought we’d share it again. Imagine finding relationships among cancer molecules like you might through social networking tools.
