Santa Paula Dead Drops

Today I placed Santa Paula on the Dead Drop map with two 4GB USB drives, bringing the total number of recorded drops in California to twelve.  A sort of digital Geocache, Dead Drops are an "anonymous, offline, peer to peer file-sharing network in public space."  It's a means of sharing files with people simply by connecting to a USB drive embedded in a wall!  Links to my drops can be found here and here.  If you visit any of them, share about it by writing a comment below!

Over rapture weekend I visited the Bay Area Maker Faire and saw some pretty incredible (and uber-geeky) projects.  Amazingly, most of the art, technology, and fun to be experienced there was home built without any sort of corporate funding or monetary goals in mind.  Attending a Maker Faire is well worth your time, even if you're not technologically inclined.  Here are a few of my photos and video clips from the weekend.
