“If you want to teach people a new way of thinking, don't bother trying to teach them. Instead, give them a tool, the use of which will lead to new ways of thinking.” ― Richard Buckminster Fuller

Nerdy but Good at it... my blog and my motto.
I actively search for:

People doing clever and cool things.
Artists showing off their latest
music that doesn't really fit in a genre.
Makers makin' stuff
Anything about 3d printing, 
Anything about tech shops, fablabs, and hackerspaces
Writers giving advice
Futurists making educated guesses, including singularity followers.
All things Nerdy, yet awesome

About 8 weeks ago A local 3d printer shop in Buenos Aires built this as a request from his mother, for around 200 bucks. Expect a LOT more of this sort of thing.

About 9 weeks ago A research team at Rice University created medical gel that can regrow bone tissue anywhere. Doctors can fill an area on the body with the gel and let the patient’s stem cells do the rest. http://engt.co/1g8DuQB

About 1 week ago Castle Print Update-
It took some time to prepare the printer for printing outdoors since I had to figure out all the cables and waterproof all the switches- in addition to the unexpected problem that the past couple weeks have been insanely hot and the drivers have been overheating. If it's 95 degrees F (35 Celsius) outside, there is no way to cool down below 95, even if you have a large fan and heatsink. 
I finally got it all figured out (thanks to James Newton), and I am continuing with the print.
In addition,  I have confirmed my theory, and I know for sure the layers are drying quickly enough for me to print nonstop.
