  1. Australia: Drone Shadows, Diagrams, and Political Systems | booktwo.org

    Great, measured piece by James on Arts Queensland’s last-minute banning of his artwork, and authorities’ embarrassment over drones. “The Drone Shadow is not just a picture of a drone. It is a diagram of a political system.”

    @engineeringdept Huge metal humanoid fighting thing driven by two people inside its head. There, you’re now caught up with 2013!

    @zzgavin @mildlydiverting @matlock @gsvoss …machine repaired, got ripped off, it was still broken, gave up, bought a new one.

    @zzgavin @mildlydiverting @matlock @gsvoss That’s different to it being easy to fix though. We tried to get our 15 yr old Bosh washing…

    @ToastMaster @mildlydiverting @matlock @gsvoss It’s OK, you’ll just 3D print new firmware & drivers! (I think that’s how this’ll all work.)

    @matlock I bet... TVs must get placed more frequently than they used to, as more of the tech changes more frequently?

    @blaine It’s possibly only my lack of experience writing good tests, or good testable code, that’s the problem!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @blaine I’m using libraries & have things working. Just trying to work out how to write tests for it and my head’s hurting all over again :)

    @hondanhon They seem to have stopped using “light sprinkling”, which is a relief. I never wanted to go out if I would get sprinkled on.
