Via email from James Ford: Thank you again Bruce and Jon. As an American ex-pat currently living in Munich (second time living abroad, the first ex-pat experience was in Paraguay), I am glad to know there are more like minded people about this part of the world. If my wife and I weren't about to have our second child we would have loved to see you at the Maker Faire, but as it is maybe we'll have to help populate the children area of Casa Jasmina in the near future.Warm Regards

Was I too apocalyptic this year? I thought perhaps then read this: http://paleofuture.gizmodo.com/the-doomsday-clock-remains-at-3-minutes-to-midn ight-bu-1755197282 The "Doomsday Clock" is at three minutes to midnight, and here's what they say we have to do about it: * Dramatically reduce proposed spending on nuclear weapons modernization programs. * Re-energize the disarmament process, with a focus on results. * Engage North Korea to reduce nuclear risks. * Follow up on the Paris accord with actions that sharply reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fulfill the Paris promise of keeping warming below 2 degrees Celsius. * Deal now with the commercial nuclear waste problem. * Create institutions specifically assigned to explore and address potentially catastrophic misuses of new technologies.
