Rite of Spring

Spoilt_for_Choice In the spring an old man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of vacuum tubes strewn across the De Anza college parking lot, and thankfully the Silicon Valley Electronics Flea Market is there to accommodate. I’ve noticed the days getting longer and it’s just about time to set our clocks forward, but I was caught completely by surprise by the return of the flea market. Thankfully folks as close by as Sunnyvale and as distant as NYC were tweeting about it last night so I forced myself to bed by 1AM so I could make the early morning trek to Cupertino.

15 cm^2 of Fame

I was at TechShop last weekend working on a project and I noticed a familiar picture hanging on the wall of the lobby. They have a wall collage of member projects on display and one of the pictures is my Spookotron Halloween pumpkin light. I recall sending in a picture of it sometime last year and apparently it’s been hanging there for months without me noticing it. Just about every time I visit TechShop I see someone making something that boggles my mind, so to have one of my projects up there really made my day.
