This weekend I stopped by Ward Cunningham's house (you know, the guy who invented the Wiki. Yes, that Ward Cunningham) to hang out, and discovered Ward's treasure trove of electronics, software, soldering guns and web accessible sensor arrays that run 24/7/365.
Ever wish you had a real cool uncle that didn't take you fishing, but instead showed you how to create your own multi-processor computer with $2 chips off the shelf? Let's step into Uncle Ward's basement.
Check Ward at out at Channel 9. You can also download MP3s, iPod, Zune and other formats there.
You might also enjoy the complete "Hanselminutes on 9" Video Series, a completely non-scripted video show that happens spontaneously throughout the year. Here's some of my favorites:
Ward has all sorts of cool stuff going on in his lab. Look for him on an upcoming episode of Rob Conery's and my new podcast, This Developer's Life.
Scott Hanselman is a former professor, former Chief Architect in finance, now speaker, consultant, father, diabetic, and Microsoft employee. I am a failed stand-up comic, a cornrower, and a book author.
