Four short links: 1 October 2013
Ploughbot, Amazon Warehouses, Kickstarting Safety, and The Island of Dr Thoreau
- Farmbot Wiki — open-source, scalable, automated precision farming machines.
- Amazon’s Chaotic Storage — photos from inside an Amazon warehouse. At the heart of the operation is a sophisticated database that tracks and monitors every single product that enters/leaves the warehouse and keeps a tally on every single shelf space and whether it’s empty or contains a product. Software-optimised spaces, for habitation by augmented humans.
- Public Safety Codes of the World — Kickstarter project to fund the release of public safety codes.
- #xoxo Thoreau Talk (Maciej Ceglowski) — exquisitely good talk by the Pinboard creator, on success, simplicity, and focus.
