I had a ball researching and writing about Ohio's newest hackerspaces for this week's hiVelocity.
Can you call it work when you get to hang out with a bunch of hackers who are controlling mushroom grow houses with a Raspberry Pi and installing giant interactive fire art displays at the Burning Man festival? I think not!
Next up, I kindled some flames with a slew of fascinating peeps who will ignite the 2013 TEDxCLE event for this week's Fresh Water.
Two of the interviewees therein, Scott Simon and Jennifer Margolis, are self-titled "TED talk addicts." When I asked them to recommend a great TED talk, they said Jill Bolte Taylor's "Stroke of Insight" was one of the best, so here you go:

Thanks to all who visit the links and spend time with my work.
