LVL1 is Louisville's hackerspace (the good kind of hackers), which is just now celebrating its one year anniversary. And sometime this winter/spring, they will try to become the first group of makers to send a robot balloon from the US to Europe via the Gulf Stream. This Saturday, they're celebrating the start of the Gulf Stream season and raising funds for the expensive build. If you donate $10, you get to send up a message in a bottle to be dropped in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean!
The CJ did a somewhat muddy article on White Star today. Maybe it's the gloomy weather, or maybe I just haven't had enough of my first cup of coffee of the day, but there's something about this article that rubs me the wrong way. Is it just me?
Anyway, I'll be out of town (I'm coming, Hagrid!). But if I weren't, I'd so be there. Here are the details. More on LVL1 and White Star soon.
