MakerFaire 2015 San Francisco Bay Area Pics

Lots of fun this year taking people to the Maker Faire in San Mateo. Here are some pictures from Saturday, May 16th. 

 

Monkeybrains Gigabit To The Home Status Map

Monkeybrains is now maintaining a map for those that bought into the first phase of the Gigabit To Home effort at the end of 2014 via their IndieGoGo campaign. It has to be so all of us will stop bugging them on how the rollout is going and when we get ours. But, I’m happy to see this is really happening and we can’t wait to help spread the speed and an alternative ISP option for San Francisco residents.

Miraloma Park, San Francisco Weather Station

Weather Underground PWS KCASANFR346

A very cool neighbor of mine installed a personal weather station in our neighborhood of San Francisco. Miraloma Park is relatively unknown even to locals and it is positioned between Glen Park and Twin Peaks below and around Mount Davidson.

Up until now, the closest weather report and information we got was around Glen Park, Twin Peaks, or Diamond Heights. With the very different micro-climates around San Francisco, this never really was very helpful to understand what was going on in our neighborhood.

If you live in Miraloma Park, I urge you to check out his Personal Weather Station on the WeatherUnderground network.

 

Supporting Hour Of Code 2014

Hour of Code this year at Stratford School has been a lot of fun!

Here is a search against the hashtag we used when visiting all our campuses this year posting pics on Twitter. We have 17 campuses in the Bay Area currently and are able to bring computational thinking and computer science into the lives of students from Pre-K through 8th grade, so #HourOfCode has been a celebration for what we have been building around curriculum changes over the last year!


The Giant Race: Home Stretch

Hey, I was just happy to make it to the finish line of The Giant Race 5K. All proceeds of the race went to Project Open Hand. The Bay Area really came out and had fun.

I was amazed at the quality of the grass on the field. It was absolutely perfectly groomed. They roped-off the infield, but it was a lot of fun to walk the field a little before heading home.
