Traditional scientific method has always been at the very best, 20 – 20 hindsight. It’s good for seeing where you’ve been. It’s good for testing the truth of what you think you know, but it can’t tell you where you ought to go.
Robert M. Pirsig

Thought for Friday

In your working process you should have no boundaries and then you have no fear.
Although some can feel uncomfortable about this, good things can come out of incomprehension and incompetence. 
It can take you places the linear, logical thought cannot.
The act of not knowing and finding something out that is new, or to find a new way and a new understanding.

From: There is a Unified Theory Of Everything.

I don’t know about you but things have been a little fraught of late. So if you would like a to take a break  but find it hard to stop, try doing nothing for 2 minutes, and to help you go here. Enjoy!

Is this little thing the next BIG thing?

raspberry pi

This tiny little ‘device’ is the Rasberry pi… a very small, very cheap basic computer. Response to the launch has been huge and it will be interesting to see where this little baby goes. I for one will be watching.

This is from Wikipedia:
In 2006, early concepts of the Raspberry Pi were based on the Atmel ATmega644 microcontroller. Its schematics and PCB layout are available for public download.[14] Foundation trustee Eben Upton assembled a group of teachers, academics and computer enthusiasts to devise a computer to inspire children.[15] The first ARM prototype version of the computer was mounted in a package the same size as a USB memory stick.[16] It had a USB port on one end and a HDMI port on the other.
