Things I am building
Slow Shopping: Looking to buy
(Slow Shopping is a concept of shopping that allows you to outsource the thrifting to friends.)
If you run across this on your thrift shop or flea market travels, I'd be interested.
I would like that you bought it for me:
- Item (max price: N kr)
Tell the world about our Style of Work
Knoll pad about videos that will appear a cooperation with monki of Gothenburg Hackerspace. We want to make a movie, an instructional.
- modular synthesizers
- microcontrollers, AVR, ARM, MSP430
- crafting things: Laptop cover
- Prgming lngs
- dataviz: Visualizing data, using graphical frameworks. Pure Data. Processing. ProtoVis from Stanford. The SIMILE stuff from MIT. Etc!
- "gamelike" experiences
- fun and simple web frameworks.
- Socially relevant hackathon problems
CampFireManager: a mini-barf
DONE: Pentabarf is huge, and runs on Ruby on Rails. Can this be done with smaller means? On other platforms, too? I'm looking into it, with an Englishman, in England.
Blogged about it. Will try and drag together people for more.
Userscripts, plugins, themes, new ways for stuff to happen in existing applications.
- GitHub lets userscripts influence their design
- Pirate Bay founder Peter Sunde told me that they incorporated a userscript as-is on their main website when they saw it was awesome.
Heroes and inspirations
Want to craft items
- Flag with Forskningsavdelningen logo
- Stamp (same)
Idea: To keep track of things, let's use labels. Label printers are cheap. Compare Labitrack.
Better solution: What we did in the end was to make labels that are the names of wiki pages in this wiki. SoldSta1 for instance, is a soldering station number one.
