Gonzo Engineering Slide Show at Google

Setting up for my talk at Google on May 18, 2015I took the Amtrak Coast Starlight to Silicon Valley in May of 2015, a trip that included a week-long visit with a group at Google, a pilgrimage to the Computer History Museum to see BEHEMOTH, and an afternoon at the Maker Faire. The surreal week in the Googleplex began with my first speaking gig in many years, with a slide show that pulls together all my technomadic projects (with speculation about what next). There are 37 slides in the collection; it starts automatically and defaults to 12 seconds each. You’ll need to pause it using the controls at the lower left if you want to watch the Winnebiko video in #7. (You can take it full-screen in some browsers. Ironically, it doesn’t work at all in Google Chrome Canary.)

I’m working on a new book about the whole bicycle adventure (all three “trimesters”), and there is of course a corresponding Facebook page…

This is an Associated Press story, yet I believe its distribution was regional to central New York... the local angle is my recent stop in Jamesville (near Syracuse, just down Interstate 81 from Waterwown). I stayed a few days there with my old friend Jean Polly and her family, and was on one of my ...
A Single System Perspective
In an early issue of the Nomadness Report, I found myself discussing the mental model necessary to take on something so insanely complex as a homebrew starship of sorts. Companies handle this sort of thing by creating a hierarchy of departments and design groups, but I'm working more or less alone o...
