As the Year Closes: How Do We Keep Time? #SaturdayMorningCartoons
My favorite celebration is New Year’s Eve. It is utterly arbitrary, but arbitrary in a kind of way that we all agree on without getting into heresies. Let’s pick this day, hang out with folks we dig, and count backwards, and cheer. Love it.
And if you’ve got a bit more time this weekend, here’s physicist Dr. Donna Carroll with a fantastic talk about the foundations of what is time, how is it divided, and how did our calendars come to be. Really great stuff from the Maastricht University School of Business and Economics.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
