I’ll be headed to #boomfestival this summer
Going to start building a geodesic dome to bring shade to our campside
Le me be very excited 😊
This weekend’s bike-venture continues (and nears its end) with a long section of road replaced by a one hour train ride that will finish 5km from my apartment
Pushed hard on today’s road section to compensate on the “lost” kms 🤪
Tonight’s pizza will be well deserved 🤤
I have been following the transcontinental race #TCRNo7 , it is a self supported, single stage bike race where riders have to go from bulgaria all the way to the western-est part of France in brittany by cycling through the alps
About 4000km that the leader of the race finished this morning in only 10days.
She (Fiona Kolbinger) was racing her first race, riding approximately 19 hours a day in the saddle and sleeping 5 hours.
For the record, she did more in 10 days than what the tour de france rides does in 20 (more hurs in the saddle, more distance and more climbs) and there is no massage and chef when she finishes her day on the road!
I am definitely packing my tent on my bicycle next weekend and trying to ride as far as possible in 3 days 🚵
Radiotopia has excellent podcasts!
This one is about a buddha ;)
But also about "hostile architecture": how urban planners and locals can act upon the urban landscape to cause social change
@Antot darn just checked and you probably do know about them already. They were the first thing I thought of.
N-O-D-E also comes to mind: they focus on decentralization, P2P, open-source, DIY and hardware design.
They also recently published a 150-page print zine, and it's available for free in electronic form on the Dat P2P network.
@Antot Research is one of my talents so hang on tight
Have you heard of Low-tech Magazine?
-- They have long-form articles going back to 2007 on everything from urban farming to wind turbines to water motors to open modular hardware to basketry to knot-tying
-- Since 2018 they've run a self-hosted solar-powered server and they have articles detailing how they did it
--They sell a 710-page paperback with their 37 most recent articles from 2012 for 2018 for (super-low-tech) offline reading
Want to put my hands on a portable #SDR emitter - receiver to tinker with packet radio and other digital modes
RaspberryPi (4) would be great for the brainz but the radio is unclear to me: LimeSDR mini have USB3 so I could use the full bandwidth of the receiver
Or a ADAML-Pluto which is equipped with USB2 so a max of 10MHz BW is possible
the pluto is hardly available but it is fitted with a FPGA-SoC onboard, this could offer some great low-level DSP
I guess I could justify the pluto to be bought on company money as a training but I'd prefer to own it myself to hack it more thouroughly
