Shelves, Ships, Shocks, PCBs and Cows!

Issac built a shelf, well, he built a whole shelving system, actually. It’s modular and easily adjustable. It’s not totally done, but it’s looking awesome so far!

Larry must have seen Solo, because he built this ship, which is called the “Millennium Falcon” and is Han Solo’s ship in the Star Wars films. It’s built using LEGO bricks, which is not how the real ship is built. (It’s also not full sized.)

Pete made a machine that makes noise and light using high voltage generators. It uses about 5 volts to create 400,000 volts of AC at a fairly low current. It’s shocking what you can make at the makerspace!

Andrew has been working on PCBs and while he’s got single sided PCBs figured out, he’s still working on two-sided PCBs. It’s not quite there yet, but making often involves trial and error.

Ben used a vinyl cutter to turn his tiny electric car into a “Cow Car” which sort of look like a cow, which is a common animal here in Wisconsin.

All systems go: marathon paves the way for member management changeover

As you know, we are in the process of ripping the guts out of our member management system and replacing it with a commercial system called Wild Apricot. This is going to affect you, and hopefully eventually delight you, but these transitions are always a little complicated.

A brave band gathered recently for a Systems Group Marathon to lay the groundwork for this transition. PS:1 uses software called Active Directory (AD) to manage logins across our disparate systems. AD is what allows you to log into the wiki, the ShopBot, the website, etc., and soon our new learning management system with a single user name and password.

The marathon volunteers upgraded AD and got it working with Wild Apricot. This means that in the future, you will have “only” two passwords to manage: one for your payments to PS:1 and one for everything else. You shouldn’t need to touch payments very often, so this isn’t as hard as it sounds. Also, the new AD allows for self-service password reset, so no more desperate emails required if you get locked out.

Excitingly, Canvas is now up and running. Canvas, our new learning management system, will soon be the foundation for the authorization process at PS:1. We hope with Canvas to make authorizations both more convenient and more consistent.

With these changes and others (new Ansible playbook, new nginx, Let’s Encrypt SSL certs, etc.), we’re now getting very close to the Wild Apricot changeover. Emails will start going out soon to small groups of users. When the process is working smoothly, the entire org will change over.

A huge thanks to Abel, Wayne, Mariano, and our CTO Sky. If you’re tired of sitting on the sidelines and being overshadowed by heroes like these, bring your IT skills to the next systems group marathon. Do it for the accolades. Do it for PS:1. Do it for the pizza.

If you’re interested, Sky is always available on Slack in the #systemsgroup channel. She can also be reached at Finally, Sky has a frequently updated and public Trello board for all IT systems stuff that you can check out here if you want to know what needs to get done and what is being worked on.

Finish a project at TOG, June Hackathon, Finishathon edition

At TOG, we love hacking, and we have a lot of projects lying around, so we want to try to finish some of them. That’s why we are having a one-day community Hackathon and the theme is Finish a Project! Don’t worry if you have a huge project that might take longer to finish, just finish a part of it. The event is free and open to everyone to attend, if you don’t have a project you can help someone else.

Group of people hacking in the TOG common room

The event will take place from 10AM to 10PM on Saturday, 23rd June in TOG, Dublin’s Hackerspace, 22 Blackpits.

The day starts at 10 with breakfast, then you can present your project or join another team. There’s no official prize, but there might be a few unofficial ones, but mainly a sense of achievement.

What can you work on at the hackathon?

You can work on anything, it’s a really open Hackathon.

  • Some people will be working on finishing Dublin Maker projects.
  • Are you coding something you want to finish?
  • Want to fix a bug in an open source project?
  • Finish writing something, design something?
  • Finish an electronics kit you have lying around?

What should I bring to the hackathon?

  • Bring whatever you need, there might be some spare parts or components at TOG.
  • Bringing a laptop is a good idea.
  • This is a one-day event so be ready to take home what you make.

Hope to see you on the day, would be helpful if you can register on Meetup so we have some idea of numbers. Any questions, please ask.

2018-06-21 Workshop, build your own sensor station

Nå får du muligheten til å lodde sammen din egen lille batteribaserte LoRa temperatur og fukt sensor.

Arrangementet er gratis og sensoren får man med seg hjem og kan plasseres i din egen hage slik at du kan følge med på hvordan klimaet endrer seg på lokalt nivå.

Mer info og påmelding her:

Vi arrangerer dette i samarbeid med UiB og prosjektet i nederland. En heldig bieffekt av dette er at det blir plassert ut LoRa gateways mot The Things Network og de som er innen rekkevidde vil kunne sette opp egne sensorer ala LoPy i tillegg.

OpenChaos am Donnerstag, 31. Mai: "Quellen-TKÜ" – wenn Behörden in Computer einbrechen

Mit den neuen Polizeigesetzen in NRW und anderen Bundesländern werden die Befugnisse zum Einsatz von Schadsoftware massiv ausgeweitet. Doch dieses Instrument ist umstritten. Während die Effektivität nicht nachgewiesen wird, ergeben sich vielzählige ethische, rechtliche, finanzielle und gesellschaftliche Probleme. Durch die fortschreitende Digitalisierung – wie der Verlagerung von Diensten in die Cloud, Internet der Dinge, selbstfahrenden Autos – intensiviert sich der Impact derartiger Maßnahmen.

Upcoming factory tour: Horween Leather

Based on the enthusiastic response to the idea of factory tours, I have reached out to a number of local businesses. It looks like the first tour is going to be with Horween Leather.

Many of you have probably seen their building at the intersection of Elston and Ashland. Horween was founded in 1905, and continues to blend handmade craftsmanship with modern techniques:

Horween Leather offers an unparalleled blend of quality, consistency, responsiveness, and innovation. Through the years, we have cultivated our experience to offer dynamic lines of leathers. Our products include traditional, old world tannages and techniques, carefully updated with modern applications. Today, our leathers are still made by hand, the same way as generations ago.

Horween’s product lines range from sports leathers (footballs and baseball gloves) to high-end footwear and other applications.

If you are interested in touring Horween, please register here.

Some things to note:

  • We don’t have a time of day, day of week, or date for the tour yet. Of course we will try to arrange a time that works best for the greatest number of people, but no guarantees are possible.
  • The number of people who can attend is limited, and participants will be chosen by random lottery.
  • Reminder: if there are other places you would like to tour — and especially if you have any connections — please get in touch!

Museums and Makers Inspiring Each Other Video

A few months back we teamed up with the Chester Beatty Library, to put on a night that gave makers and museums people a chance to learn from each other. Below is the video from the event with interviews with Don Undeen of BoomHiFive, Georgetown University Maker Hub, and Jenny Siung, Head of Education, Chester Beatty Library, and our own Jeffrey Roe giving their thoughts on makers and museums.



This event was part of the Making Museum project, an 18-month EU-funded training initiative (Erasmus+ 20172019) exploring how museum staff can up-skill in creativity, innovation, creative collaborations with local maker communities, and embed these ideas in their public programmes for audiences.
