    Interop Radio: Women in Maker Management

    in Technology

    This week we look to overcome technical issues and have as our guest Tenaya Hurst of Linino.org and Rogue Making.


    Tenaya Hurst is a Maker.  With a degree from Indiana University in theatre, geology, and anthropology, she is self taught in microcontroller programming. March 16th 2013 she found out what an Arduino is and now she works for them, promoting the new Linino hardware allowing you to use any programming language to control the hardware, wirelessly. Tenaya enjoys teaching kids how to program, solder, and sew with electronics. Her goal is to inspire kids everywhere to try electrical engineering. Learn more in the Intel MakeHer report, Make:43 in a tell-all article by Dale Dougherty, and www.RogueMaking.com.


    Join us for a show that will look at what it takes to be a woman "making it" in the maker community, how the special energy of the maker community has had an impact on her management ideas, and why the DIY spirit of "makers" might just be critical for the future success of your IT projects.


    Interop 2015 will take place from April 27th through May 1st at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. More information and registration details are available online!

    Call in - reach out or just focus on the chat room... Doesn't matter to us - we love the interaction!  Ultimately it's the Chat Room where everyone hangs out, so make sure to load it up!


    Superbowl Weekend coming up... What's the topic? We still don't know until the show starts. We have some ideas on what to talk about - but the callers shape the show!


    Three ways to connect:



    Call: (646) 595-4888 to talk to the hosts (POTS, Cell or SkypeOut)
    Skype in via the webpage, but you'll need to register on BlogTalkRadio.com site first (choose the FREE account, not paid account).

    Interop Radio: Making It in Maker Management

    in Technology

    IT is big. Really big. So big, in fact, that it encompasses systems from the very, very large to the rather tiny. It's those tiny systems that are the specialty of our guest this week, Tenaya Hurst of Linino.org and Rogue Making.


    Note: Technical issues prevented Tenaya from being with us for today's show. Instead, we talked about the results of an Intel study reported in MakeHers Report: Engaging Girls and Women in Technology through Making, Creating, and Inventing. We will work on having Tenaya as a guest on a future episode.


    Tenaya is a passionate "maker", creating wearable technology and teaching programming (along with a variety of other skills) to interested groups and individuals across North America. 


    Join us for a show that will look at what it takes to be a woman "making it" in the maker community, how the special energy of the maker community has had an impact on her management ideas, and why the DIY spirit of "makers" might just be critical for the future success of your IT projects.

    Make: Talk #005 Tom Igoe, Arduino developer

    in Technology

    On this week's Make: Talk, we'll be talking to Tom Igoe, one of the developers of Arduino (the extremely popular open source microcontroller), and the Area head of physical computing at the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at New York University. Mark is still on the road, so Dale and I will be joined "in the studio" by Goli Mohammadhi, Assoc Managing Editor of MAKE and CRAFT. In addition to talking to Tom, we'll present some news from the world of making, as well as some of our favorite tricks, tips, and tools of the week. Be sure to call in for prizes that we'll award during the program!

    The Survival Podcast
    Episode-895- Will Bratton and Sam Bagot on Open Source
     
    Sam Bagot and Will Bratton are woking togehter on an open source agriculture project called horto domi.   Horto domi is an open hardware raised-bed garden unit with environmental control and monitoring via web-interface thanks to Arduino Ethernet. DIY sensors, such as those collecting moisture and temperature data help monitor the environment within the dome and will eventually be used to automate conditions.
    The goal is to grow whatever you want, whenever you want, wherever you are. Horto domi is Latin for ‘Garden at home.’ It’s a statement to healthful food independence, a “neo-renaissance” tip of the hat to Arduino, and it sounds like horticultural dome. Particular consideration was taken in this prototype’s design to maximize the mineral and nutrient value of the beyond-organic produce and minimize environmental contamination risks.
    Sam and Will are looking for Kickstarter funding that will satisfy all the elements necessary for an open hardware publication per the definition provided by FreedomDefined.org/OSHW. However, with additional funding they will be able to pursue further open source innovation, development and publication. They hope our community will support their idea for using contemporary open technology to achieve relative food independence so that we may all better address the goal of individual and community self sufficiency.

    Make: Talk #005 Part Deux Over w/ Tom Igoe

    in Technology

    Gareth borked last week's show 15 minutes in. Amazingly, we were in the process of talking about failure and embracing it, learning from it. So we kept the episode. Listen to the brief discussion and then hear Gareth muttering to himself as he tries to fix his screw-up. Hilarity ensues. So, THIS week, we'll finish talking to Tom Igoe, one of the developers of Arduino. We'll also present some news from the world of making, and our favorite tricks, tips, and tools of the week. Be sure to call in for prizes that we'll award during the program!
