What I’m reading: 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos T0day was spent running around, Grocery, Hardware, Pet store.   I’m beat from the driving.

What I’m reading: Cnut the Great Day 2 of Molly refusing to get into the car.  She is now bouncing off the walls, and I figure it is going to be a long night. Spent an hour or so putting together (Partially) the quadcopter.   Got it mostly together and realized I had it all backwards.  LOL.  …

Local Event Push

We all know that problem of “what to do on the weekend or during free time”. To solve this issue, I would like to see developed an app that gives push notifications about places/events/things to do/attractions nearby. The target group for this app is not tourists from elsewhere but rather residents of any area. Lets …
