May 06 2013There is a lot of talk (and rumors) about watches. I keep thinking “we don’t need no stinking watches”. I like not wearing a watch. Having something on my wrist decreases ease of melding with my computer. I like the flow-state where it is just me and the bits, working together to… read more
May 01 2013Last Wednesday, I was on a panel at Design West (the embedded systems conference). The panel was about using sensors in health applications. It was called Sensors Saving Lives and it was in the Expo Theater, right on the show floor, so there were lots of people walking by (and… read more
April 24 2013At the embedded systems conference, Star Simpson, Jen Costillo, and I did a talk called Start Tinkering. The goal was to get people interested in doing hobby projects: why we do it and how to get into it. We did a radio show, I announced at the inaugural podcast. But… read more
March 24 2013I don’t normally do New Year’s resolutions. However, I did this year so here is my quarterly report. Oh, but I didn’t exactly do a normal resolution.

We should have known. Because she enthusiastically wanted to play ball (even as she was vomiting), we thought… read more
February 06 2013A week ago, I started taking an intro to stained glass through Los Gatos recreation. As I was considering taking the class, a slumped glass artist friend (Kristin, IdleCreativity at Etsy) said she’d heard of the teacher and asked did I want to take the class. Well, yes, with having… read more
February 01 2013Hi! How are you? I hope things are going well. Still working on neat stuff? And the family, everybody happy and healthy? I’m doing well. It has been a little crazy since the start of the new year but I’m starting to get a handle on everything. We’ve been doing… read more
Webcast: Conducting a Technical Interview
