So I’ve not posted in awhile, and I’m not going to try to play catch-up, but I’ll apprise whoever is reading this of some stuff that’s on my mind. First off, why do people fear using real tools to get a job done. Like what’s the point of a little duster when you can use a leaf blower. Cleaned out my computer case in 2 seconds and didn’t destroy the ozone or cause pollution.

Quick note that I have a talk at the Body Sensor Network conference last week. It went really well, and I met some cool people.

I’m going to be putting together some demos and new material in regards to my research shortly. I’m going to be creating a fork of the development effort to look into potential spin-off possibilities. I’m getting a license from the university for my code, and part of my royaltee payments will go back to me — funny how that works. I also migrated to Altium Designer, and now, Cadsoft Eagle looks like microsoft Paint. Bought year’s license for $130 given that I’m a student, normal price is $14,000. And I hate to say it, but after using it for some time, I think that’s a reasonable price given what it offers. The lab is coming together, and I hope to have a dedicated office space in the next 6 months. Anyhow, stay tuned for some updates.
