CS Ethics, Insect IoT, Glitch Showcase, and SQL Repos
Ethics — Harvard project that integrates ethics modules
into courses across the standard computer science curriculum.
Those modules are straightforward, online, and open access.
Living IOT: A
Flying Wireless Platform on Live Insects — We develop and
deploy our platform on bumblebees which includes backscatter
communication, low-power self-localization hardware, sensors, and a
power source. We show that our platform is capable of sensing,
backscattering data at 1 kbps when the insects are back at the
hive, and localizing itself up to distances of 80 m from the access
points, all within a total weight budget of 102 mg. (via
What We Made — showcase of Glitch apps.
SQL Together — why I recommend tracking SQL queries in git:
1. You will *always* need that query again. 2. Queries are living
artifacts that change over time. 3. If it’s useful to you, it’s
useful to others (and vice versa)
