Some interesting electronics/microcontroller/hacker themed blogs I’m reading these days:
- NYC Resistor – Definitely the most interesting hackerspace in the US right now. Updates almost daily. I stand in awe of how prolific these guys/girls are, it seems like they are pushing the envelope of DIY every week. This blog alone makes me want to move to NYC sometimes. (Well, them and ITP.)
- Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories – Evil mad scientist duo Windell and Lenore showed the world what an electronics blog could be – 100% high quality photography, open source everything, and unique and captivating projects time and time again. Along with Lada Ada they made the Atmel AVR the standard for beginning microcontrollers. They sell stuff too.
- The Make: Blog – You could pretty much read this one alone and still stay on top of what’s hot in DIY right now. They usually follow EMSL and NYC Resistor anyway.
And some new (to me) blogs:
- DadHacker – This guy wrote Donkey Kong for the Atari. This blog has been around for years, lots 8-bit assembly coding stuff which is fascinating.
- Bre Pettis’ Blog – Bre is on a mission and is stirring up a lot of interest in DIY. He has a TV show starting up in a couple weeks. His departure from Make is still being mourned (by me at least). Weekend Projects will never be the same (sorry, Kip).
That’s it for now. If I missed any good ones, I’d love to hear about them, leave a comment or contact me. You can access all of the blogs I mentioned (and a couple more) from the blogroll to the right.
