‘Our Digital Rights to the City’ from @MeatspacePress
With articles by ten authors and editing by Joe Shaw & Mark Graham, ‘Our Digital Rights to the City’ is available as a printed pamphlet, self-print option (with CC BY-NC-SA 2017 license), or, free digital download (no doubt!) from Meatspace Press. These are the kinds of things I love to read, and also print out extra copies and leave laying around places like at places where people congregate or even on the subway 😉
‘Our Digital Rights to the City’ is a small collection of articles about digital technology, data and the city. It covers a range of topics relating to the political and economic power of technologies that are now almost inescapable within the urban environment. This includes discussions surrounding security, mapping, real estate, smartphone applications and the broader idea of a ‘right to the city’ in a post-digital world.
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.
