SOPA, Creative times and DuctBot v0.3.3

DuctBot is more stable on it’s feet but still not sensing anything from the world, that comes soon.  To be attracted by light?  To be attracted by sound?  To transduce distance ultrasonically?  I am going budget, so maybe a few microphones and a few LDR’s, sorry, light dependant resistors, and have it with two senses, maybe a few switches for a third sense, where to stop?  I guess when I can no longer recycle with bits I have lying around 🙂

And from robots – to polymer clay.  I had a recent play with polymer clay, and will soon attempt design 3 of the friendship tealight holder.  Pics coming soon, it’s just being refined.

And now for SOPA… today is the internet blackout.  Searching earlier, researching ideas I ended up at OReilly.com – blackout, I think they have an account login section but seemingly, nothing more. (wow, cool!).  My travels took me to Sparkfun.com – they have a blocked out logo.  Not to mention, WordPress.org  🙂  I knew of this pending day but I forgot until I arrived at work.. Well done for all those who have highlighted this current issue to a broader number of people in more locations.  This is an interesting time in the evolution of not only the internet but consciousness of the entire human race.  We cannot let the power of the entertainment industry control the internet, and censorship is not the answer.

I don’t watch many movies (the odd one here or there), and little TV but there within western societies, there are a lot of people who watch a lot of movies.  I am pretty certain that I could go without movies and TV, could you?  Would you?

SOPA / PIPA are not friendly!
