“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

There is work to be done, but no jobs.  What does that tell us?

About 9 weeks ago 78-year-old Texan Pat Delany has devoted his life and skills to developing open source machine tools for the developing world. Here he's pictured with his MultiMachine, a complete machine shop in one tool, with no electric power necessary, built entirely from scrap car and truck parts.
