By the way, the big news this weekend was that HSC electronics is NOT moving as was rumored earlier in the year. Speaking of HSC, this coming weekend is the annual HSC sidewalk sale. (This year they’re calling it a warehouse clearance sale due to downsizing at their present location.)
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.)
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.
Printed circuit boards can be interesting and beautiful, with their delicate traces and colorful components in all shapes and sizes. I just created a new Flickr group for photos of printed circuits like the one shown above. More details about the group can be found on Flickr:
Photos exploring the beauty of printed circuit boards and components, including both surface mount and through-hole PCB construction.
