The UK's RSPCA is taking care of hundreds of weak and injured baby hedgehogs. According to an article in The Mail On Sunday, the region's mild autumn has resulted in a shortage of food leaving the hedgehogs ill-prepared for hibernation. This hedgehog is in the care of the Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital
in Buckinghamshire, England. From the Tiggywinkles site:
Any hedgehog that has not reached 600 grams or is injured in any way, when the weather turns cold will not have the fat reserves to survive hibernation, and so must be kept indoors throughout the winter. (See our Hedgehog Overwintering Fact Sheet). Larger hedgehogs which have recovered from treatment but have not yet been released should be kept in outside pens with weatherproof boxes crammed full of hay and newspaper (not shredded). Dog food and fresh water should be put out each evening, although if the weather turns very cold the hedgehog may go into hibernation.

I asked Amy Parness, the co-founder of Sparkle Labs, maker of fantastic educational electronics kits, to write a Medium post about gender and the business of being a maker business person. Her terrific essay calls out the problems with “pink girly engineering kits.” From Medium:
Zero UI is the new term for “invisible interfaces”—what happens in the future when all the clicking and tapping and typing is history: “If you look at the history of computing, starting with the jacquard loom in 1801, humans have always had to interact with machines in a really abstract, complex way.” [Fast Company]
