Scalability: Google I/O 2013 Registration

On March 13th, 4:00am HST, registration for the Google I/O 2013 conference opened to the public. Barely coherent, at 3:45am I rolled out of bed, bumping each wall in my apartment hallway as I stumbled towards my Macbook. I checked to see if my Google+ and Google Wallet accounts were properly set up as…

Call to STEM

Recently, I have come across this infographic floating around the web that I believe deserves more attention. You can see the full version here. It illustrates the labor pool shortage we are experiencing in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) related fields. Some key…

Write You're Own eBook in Markdown with Ruby and Github Pages

Many of us have either had the urge to write a book or spew some sort of long-winded excrement of words.  Maybe it's a story that's been bouncing around in your head, a piece of history you would like to document, or a coalescence of documentation/blog posts on a subject you are passionate about.

Think Functionally

It wasn't so long ago that functional programming seemed to be an arcane science. If you knew Haskell, Standard ML, or Common Lisp, you've either been programming for a very long time, involved in computer science research, or just had a lot of free time on your hands.

3D Printing and CNC Milling services available


I've recently setup a 'Kitchen Counter Factory' consisting  of a Makerbot Replicator2 3D printer and a Shapeoko CNC Milling machine. Together these offer powerful prototyping capabilities. One machine to make things and  another machine to modify them. I can offer these services at a more competitive rate than from a mainland or overseas fabricator. If you need customized parts let me know at and we'll see what we can make.

Remembering 3/11

On March 11, 2011 a magnitude 9.03 earthquake rocked Japan, which resulted in a devastating 133 feet tsunami and a level 7 nuclear meltdown.

Out of this chaos good samaritans built and open sourced hardware to assist in recording radiation levels. The Make blog has an update on this project.

Remembering Japan – Contribute to a Fantastic…

Trying out Xamarin Studio 2.0 Starter Edition

Trying out Xamarin Studio 2.0 Starter Edition

Xamarin Studio is an IDE that allows developers to create iOS, Android and Mac apps using C#.  Recently Xamarin released Xamarin Studio 2.0 and along with a free Starter edition.  While the Starter edition is very limited it allows developers to see what Xamarin Studio is like and how writing Android apps using C# works.  I was hoping to create an iOS app, but it turns out a Mac is still required in order to write iOS apps even…
