I’ve been rather too busy building robots and serving customers to write more than half of anything. But I wanted to come up for air, so to speak, and let everybody know that I’m still mostly alive. The collision of my robotic and customeric worlds provided me with the occasion that I have been looking for. I noticed and commented on a customer’s bumper sticker a week or two ago. He told me that he made them with a friend of his. At that point, I basically commanded him to bring one for me to stick onto the robotic arm I’m building for one of my classes. I can’t wait to slap this thing onto the finished product and set it loose.
