Roadtrip

Sorry posts are a bit sporadic this week (we’re rather neglecting Twitter too): the last couple of days have consisted mainly of driving across large bits of America, spending large amounts of quality hackspace, speaking and teaching time – and sleeping, eating, washing and all that unavoidable stuff. I got a grand total of half an hour in front of a computer yesterday, which I ended up spending on the enormous pile of email that’s building up while we’re out of the office.

Alongside the hackspace visits, we’ve also been doing teaching workshops with a group of very clever kids from the Broadcom Masters programme. You can read more about it here.

Yesterday’s visit to Hackerspace Charlotte was just brilliant – we couldn’t believe the turnout and the enthusiasm, and it was great to see some of the projects people brought along to the show and tell. We’ll have some video later of Eben’s talk (a longer version of the missing Maker Faire talk).

We’re now heading off to Columbia NC, then Charleston, for today’s two talks. More of that later!
