The first Maker Faire was 15 years ago today, and it’s also 50 years of Earth day… @make @makerfaire @SherryHuss #EarthDay @EarthDayNetwork

What were you doing 15 years ago? I was at the first Maker Faire as one of the MAKE team members, more folks showed up than we expected, it was amazing and kicked off over a decade of Maker Faires that are still being held around the world (and will again one day)… Here’s my post on the MAKE site from 15 years ago, none of the links work that go to news sites though 🙁

Today is also the 50th year of Earth Day.

PyPortal Quarantine Clock

Do you know what day it is? Perhaps you’re finding yourself losing track of time and your routine is suffering. The PyPortal Quarantine Clock has got you covered! It only displays the essential “stay-at-home” information – the current day and a rough estimate of the time.
The PyPortal obtains the precise time from the internet using the PyPortal’s built-in WiFi module, then updates and displays an estimate of the time and date. The quarantine clock is programmed using CircuitPython and easily customizable.

Check out the full guide here!
