“Ask an engineer chat” tonight 9/26/2009 – 10pm ET with special guests EMSL and Makerbot
Our weekly “Ask an engineer chat” is tonight 9/26/2009 – 10pm ET and we will have some special guests – EMSL (Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories) and Makerbot! We will be experimenting with doing our chat “LIVE” and mobile again!
For old schoolers, you can use IRC, you’ll need a Ustream log/pass, check out the Ustream IRC how-tos here and here
We are #adafruit-industries6796 on IRC server chat1.ustream.tv
There will be a trivia question at the end of the night as always!
Lastly, if anyone can save a log we’d appreciate it
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter

Well unfortunately I have to work tonight so won’t be able to catch it…some other time for sure though. The MakerBot guys rock! I definitely want one.
Anxiously awaiting my ice tube clock! … I’ve already got a GPS module for it. Might have to wait until after Oct 1 before I have time to add the code into the clock code to talk to it though. (It’s a trimble lassen SQ I scrounged out of another device, along with an active antenna)
