Here’s a story called Local Motion: New Ideas from KVNF. Take a listen!
Store includes Chris Yates, the founder of The Hive, a co-working space in rural Colorado. Then, KVNF’s Laura Palmisano talks to Russell Evans the director of Transition Lab, an education alternative in Montrose. The episode wraps up with a conversation with Craig Hollabaugh of the Montrose Makerspace.

Hey, we hit the Winter 2014 issue of The Monitor.

Arduino Powers F-16

My write up spans several photo blog entries with 111 photographs and 14 videos. The project summary posting is here.

The project involved about 10 people, the Montrose Makerspace, contribution from board house, and more than 500 hours of volunteer time.

The result is the first static F-16 on display with functioning lights. The New Mexico Senators and a Brigadier General attended the restoration reveal.

F16 Lighting Controller Install

The F16 Lighting Controller install was 100% functional from first power on, check out my “Picture of the Day” post.

A Swordfish and a Laser

Snapped a photo of a rusty white silhouette of a swordfish a couple of months ago. I wanted to laser out my own version, someday…. Today is the day.
Cut the swordfish out of the picture, converted it from raster to vector art & cut it out of 1/4″ plexiglass. The video is a time lapse of the project being laser cut.

F16 Light Install

The F16 lights are installed and they look great! I’m heading to Albuquerque today to install the controller and tune the firmware.
