MEETING CHAT

00:13:15 John Jennings: Sad news, CreaMakerSpace will be closing.

00:14:48 John Jennings: It has been open for a year but the owner said he wasn’t getting enough growth to keep it running.

00:18:55 camp: https://www.espressif.com/en/solutions/low-power-solutions/esp-now 

00:19:19 James Newton: Keeping a Maker Space going is very difficult. The local one which has had great success for many many years, and is now moving into a much larger space is funded by burners taking art to Burning Man. LOL. That’s a system that actually works.

00:20:51 camp: Very awesome! :-]

00:24:49 James Newton: I want to really recommend people read this paper… from 1996, and think about the accomplishment it represents. It’s the start of Google self-driving cars, and Waymo, the only successful self driving system. And it drove from CMU to San Diego with less than 3% human help, at speeds up to 55 MPH. In 1995. With 32×30 pixels. And nothing else. (!!!) Seriously, read the paper.
