Whew, it’s been a little crazy these past few weeks… Here’s a quick recap.

I started off May by declaring it Processing Month. I ended up doing well for a while, but things got quiet near the end of May. That’s not to say I wasn’t doing anything, as I was actually working on a Processing application that will be part of my show at Bay View Gallery Night.

Controller (in progress)

That’s all I’ll say about that right now. If you want to see it, come to the Milwaukee Makerspace June 3rd, 2011, otherwise, I’ll post more about it next week.

Speaking of the Milwaukee Makerspace, I may be working with Make:Live on their June 8th, 2011 show to do a live call-in from the space. That should be cool… assuming it all works. As much as the Internet provides a good amount of magic, it’s the kind of magic that doesn’t always work.

Speaking of Make, they had a nice little post about my Photo Booth project. Which, by the way, will also be at the Milwaukee Makerspace for Gallery Night. (Seriously, I may need to get a trailer for the CR-V soon!)

Egg-Bot at Higher Learning Day

Speaking of eggs, I also joined Sean from Milwaukee Makerspace to do a “Higher Learning” day at an elementary school, which included demoing the Egg-Bot all day long. It was fun but exhausting. Kids have a lot of energy, and more than one told me they were “unpatient” whatever that is…

And because that’s not enough going on, we’re also doing the second PhotoCampMilwaukee on June 4th, 2011.

The next few months may have a few more surprises in store, they might not all be good, but I’m sure it’ll be an adventure… Happy motoring!


Waiting for PhotoCamp

Waiting for PhotoCamp

As of my writing this post, just a little over 24 hours before PhotoCampMilwaukee starts… we have 170 people registered…

I am officially freaking out.


What is a PhotoCamp?

PhotoCampMilwaukee is happening happened May 2, 2009 at Bucketworks in Milwaukee, Wisconsin…

Hopefully this brief presentation will explain a few things…


PhotoCampMilwaukee Promo

PhotoCampMilwaukee will be held on Saturday May 2, 2009 at Bucketworks, located at 1340 N. 6th Street in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

PhotoCampMilwaukee… almost here!

I’ve been buried with work for the past few weeks, and this has crept up on me… but we are less than a month away from our very first PhotoCamp here in Milwaukee.

We’ve got a website at where we’ve been publishing profiles of people who will be attending, with the hopes that you can get to know about some of your fellow campers, even before the event starts.

And if you’re still a little cloudy, the About page explains things:

PhotoCampMilwaukee is a BarCamp-like event fully focused on photography. It’s an ad-hoc “un-conference” where people who love photography can get together and teach what they know, and learn what they don’t. It’s about sharing in an open environment. Everyone has experience to share, and getting everyone together in one place, for a full day, seems like a great way to do it.

We’ve got a great bunch of sponsors helping us make this event happen, including:

And if you’re interested in sponsoring, or otherwise supporting PhotoCamp, just get in touch with me.
