Mark your calendars: the Eclectic Tech Carnival 2019 will take place in Athens, Greece, from 7 to 13 October!
Watch for the Open Call coming on 1 August - hope to see you there.

Someone I know is looking for a platform to share his open source project. It's a sound system for bikes, with a technical aspect, bill f materials and a part physical building.


I thought of libreobjet.org/

Leaving to etextile Summercamp on Monday in moulinsdepaillard.wordpress.co. As I don't want to take my rigid heddle loom, I have started preparing some samples, which should become capacitive touch sensors.

Using a Copper Karl Grimm thread in the warp, weaving another conductive thread in there (20% stainless steel, 80% polyester)
I used the clasped weft technique in the conductive (grey) zones. On my rigid heddle loom, in the kitchen..

Okay, I've tried everything else, let's see what happens here. I'm a 56yo IT professional currently facing age discrimination in the job market. My skills are proven and broad. I can do operations, project management, service delivery; am versed in multiple OSs, monitoring systems, ticketing platforms. I'm a technical writer and published author. I'm willing to relocate pretty much anywhere for a job that pays enough to cover my mortgage. I need employment by Sept 30. CV on request. #job #dayjob

Je tente ma chance à tout hasard :

J’aurai bientôt 40 ans et je n’ai jamais appris à faire du vélo, en raison d’un handicap à la main droite et au bras droit.

J’aimerais désormais réparer cela. Pour cela, la première étape va être de trouver un vélo adapté à mon handicap.

Quelqu’un connait-il une boutique de vélos, si possible sur Nantes, qui pourrait me renseigner et m’aider à trouver une solution adaptée ?

Boosts bienvenus si vous n’avez pas vous même de réponse 🙂

Wondering if anyone has found / used a ADSL/VDSL Modem router that is supported by OpenWrt ? Would be totally ok wit another open firmware if it would run properly on a modem router.

The list from the website is not exactly encouraging :

Upsetting Settings presents graduation projects initiated by Alexander Roidl, Alice Strete, Angeliki Diakrousi, Joca van der Horst, Natasha Berting, and Zalán Szakács. The concept of this exhibition arises from the idea of the default setting, a situation in which a specific mode of interaction is selected automatically, pre-configured to work out of the box without the need to tinker with its underlying apparatus. Every system comes with default settings predefined by its creators, and most of the time, these settings remain unchanged by us, the users of such systems. These defaults do not represent our needs but are possibly the materialisation of biases from the system's makers, from corporate or political interests, from a society at large. The projects engage with the concept of default modes and propose interventions in their core structure/source/root so as to start thinking collectively about better places from which to begin. You are invited to become root users, active listeners, smart speakers, intentional eaters, counter trolls, sensorial spectators!
