The National Day of Hacking has five locations in Chicago including the
Adler one, one at Blue1647 or is it 37, the one below and two others.


Being old is fun and weird and scary.  I just lost the last of my Uncles a
week ago and he was 97.  That would be another 35 years for me.  The
Englewood Codes Project to me holds great promise not only for young folks
but for all folks if we can get business owners to link up little servers
along cities bus routes and other transportation routes get hooked up as
they are here holds promise for projects like Visual CTA Chicago even if my
particular project is not the one that takes hold.

Programming projects, even open source very complicated projects should not
be as hard as they are.  Building databases that mapped every well, every
seismic line, all known oil and gas reserves and the basement of the earth
went a lot faster than this.
