Watercolors painted by a robot based on vehicle data. A remote control toy car that mimics the route of a real car. A synthesized symphony conducted by your automobile. These were only a few of the fantastic, curious, and delightful projects created in just a day at Boing Boing Ingenuity: Data Driven, our first-ever hack day in San Francisco on August 17. More than 50 folks got their hands dirty with data through our partner Ford's OpenXC open source hardware and software platform. Boing Boing's talented video director Eric Mittleman and his crew captured dozens of hours of video from multiple roving cameras resulting in this rollicking short documentary about the experience. Thank you to all of the brilliant hackers who inspire us with their creativity, support of open source, and, yes, ingenuity!

Projects will always need management. And now with the tech gold rush it feels like there are more projects than ever with fewer managers than there’s demand for. But it takes too much time and money to go back to school full time so luckily the Project Management Professional certification training course is now 96% […]
