Computer Rooms

Book put together by Goto80 features photos of computer set ups, personal spaces of computer culture:

This is what computer culture really looks like. A collection
of photos that show the messy reality behind the shiny online facade. Where we make our living and spend our free time. And try to be creative. Or maybe even worse.

Very few people get to see these spaces. It’s not the kind of place we take photos of, or show to visitors. Maybe we don’t even see it ourselves. It’s a sort of secluded area hidden in plain sight, full of secrets, now on display in this book.

The project began in 2009, when I started to collect photos of 8-bit computers. Gradually, I got more interested in the context rather than the machines. For me this book is actually not about technology. It’s about the things around the computer - the room and the context. Our living conditions. Because it’s in places like this that books are written and scientific research is done. These kinds of places lead to political actions, fantastic music, art, new friends, inventions, love, and so much more. This is IRL!

A 3D Printing system that can create forms without the hindrance of gravity - video embedded below:

A brand new method of additive manufacturing. This patent-pending method allows for creating 3D objects on any given working surface independently of its inclination and smoothness, and without a need of additional support structures. Conventional methods of additive manufacturing have been affected both by gravity and printing environment: creation of 3D objects on irregular, or non-horizontal surfaces has so far been treated as impossible . By using innovative extrusion technology we are now able to neutralize the effect of gravity during the course of the printing process. This method gives us a flexibility to create truly natural objects by making 3D curves instead of 2D layers. Unlike 2D layers that are ignorant to the structure of the object, the 3D curves can follow exact stress lines of a custom shape. Finally, our new out of the box printing method can help manufacture structures of almost any size and shape.

When it comes to being gentle, start with yourself. Don’t get upsest with your imperfections. Being disappointed by failure is understandable, but it shouldn’t turn into bitterness or spite directed at yourself. It’s a great mistake because it leads nowhere—to get angry because you are angry; upset at being upset; disappointed because you are disappointed.
St. Frances de Sales (via quote-book)
