There is so much amazingly cool "stuff" to see and do that I'm amazed I find the time to get any real work done. In my blog I will waffle on about the books I'm reading, the projects I'm building, and the weird and wonderful websites I blunder across. Please Email Me if you see anything you think will "tickle my fancy."

I am quite fond of words. I enjoy the way they roll around my head and drip off my tongue. I was watching an episode of Law and Order on television the other day -- the original one with Sam Waterston playing Jack McCoy -- when Jack's boss dropped "the nattering nabobs of negativism"......

It's strange how things sometimes seem to come at you in waves. For example, I've recently been inundated with messages from friends pointing me at incredible mechanisms that make me squeal "Ooh, Shiny!" in a high-pitched voice (I'm not proud of doing it; I'm working on s......

I just had an epiphany. It didn't hurt though so don't worry. I was sitting down at the time. This is all to do with the Internet of Things (IoT).   I know that the IoT is a buzz-word everyone is throwing around these days, but I firmly believe that -- in the very near future -- the......

Every now and then, I am fortunate enough to run across a real game changer that puts a spring in my step, a twinkle in my eye, and makes my creative juices start to flow. Such an occurrence just came my way. This new technology will make it possible for just about anyone to quickly and easily cre......

One way I keep myself out of trouble is to always have a bunch of hobby projects on the go. A few years ago I started playing with Arduino microcontroller development boards. The great thing about these boards: they have so many add-on boards (called "shields") available, such as motor c......

I truly believe we are on the brink of a major evolution in embedded systems technology involving embedded vision and embedded speech capabilities.   One example I often use to describe what I'm talking about is that of a humble electric toaster in the kitchen. Actually, that reminds me......

I had a bit of a scare recently. It made me stop and think, and the thought at the forefront of my mind was: "If I were to lose my left arm, how would this impact my ability to create my electronic hobby projects?"   Yes, I know that there's more to life than electronic hobby ......

Quite a few Pooh Sticks have gone under the bridge since I first got in touch with my chum Adam Taylor. It all started when I read one of Adam's columns in the Xilinx Xcell Journal, following which I invited him to become a blogger on the All Programmable Planet website for which I was the edi......

I recently got an email from someone we'll call Martin (because that's his name). Martin's message was short and sweet. In its entirety it read: "You need to see this!"   Martin is obviously a man of few words who likes to make each one count. Happily, he also included......
