20050723 – In order to use the sexy ATtiny2313 20pin AVR MCU with built-in UART and dual PWM I had to upgrade some of the development tools. avr-gcc, avr-binutils, and avr-libc have all been updated on my tools page. .

20050701 – My story on howto make aGlowing, Wearable, EL-Wire, Blinky Light using Open Source Tools Make: Magazine Story.

20050627 – Full update of PIC, AVR, Schematic, and layout tools for Mac OS X fink packages posted to my tools page.

20050505 – Parsons Class “Flocking” talk on Mac OS X microcontroller development.

20050414 – Parsons Class “Flocking” one hour talk on some of the pitfalls of working with wearables. Using my own projects as examples.

20040514 – Last Friday CBS reported on my EL Ring Bag Dan Dubno covered it in his Gizmorama segment that aired that morning. There is a Multimedia tab in addition to the text article on the right side of the page which includes the broadcast.

20040307 – The next Lower East Side MAC Unix Users Group meeting is Thursday, March 25th. I will be presenting my electronic clothing projects. This talk should be very similiar to the Dorkbot talk. I removed the previous movie on my past electronic clothing projects that was on my website. I have now made a new smaller, lower quality movie. Its is available as quicktime (3MB).

20040305 – Next NYC Dorkbot is April 7th, 2004 (thats a Wednesday). I will be presenting my electric clothing. There could be a flat-el project that uses conductive thread in there. I just had some success tonight making a LED glow using a foot of conductive thread instead of standard copper wire.

20040201 – Lots of progress has been made over the last week. I’ve made or gathered up many unsubmitted fink configurations for Mac OS/X EDA, and microcontroller development tools. My switch from PIC microcontroller development to AVR development on OS/X has made some progress. I’ve built and packaged all the utilities I should need and made those configurations available. Also in my tools link. Like the new webpage?
