At the park, vlogging like Rupert

I’ve been watching twittervlog, off and on over the past year or two. The joy of watching it of course is Rupert. The amazing thing about it is it’s mostly done on his Nokia n93 phone. That’s also what makes his vlog work. It’s the quick immeadiacy of it all.


Kids welding at San Mateo Maker Faire 2008

I went with the kids to Maker Faire this year and it was a blast. If you have kids I highly recommend it. Where else can you get a chance to do arc welding?

There was a group of people there presenting a large metal sculpture they built of a woman with her hands outstretched. Every so often the sculpture would burtst into flames that originated from her beating heart. These same folks were doing demonstrations of arc welding and invited kids to come and try it themselves. My kids joined in the fun and got a great experience out of it.
