I'm considering what it will take to start a small maker space at our school, and I'm curious what the "basic" elements are based on others' experience. In other words, I don't want to get the flashy stuff and then realize there are really simple things we overlooked.

I'm tumbling down into the deep, deep hole that is YouTube. I need an eight-hour long track of typing sounds to play at work.

Watching people with relatively new computers effortlessly run Gnome makes me a little envious.

"What Does the Fox Say" came out nearly 5 years ago, at the peak of a Tek Jr's "everything is embarrassing" stage. They were horrified that our neighbors might hear the song playing on our TV through our open windows and begged - pleaded - that I please turn it down. This, of course, led to me digging the subwoofers out of storage.

To be honest I am pretty excited by the possibilities of Google Duplex. I think it is definitely uncharted territory. But imagine if you have a disability that makes speech or hearing difficult or impossible and you have an assistant built into your phone to help you. On the other hand, it *isn’t* really in your phone and it is massively important to know how Google will handle that data.
