CS Ethics, Insect IoT, Glitch Showcase, and SQL Repos
- Embedded 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.

- Looky What We Made — showcase of Glitch apps.
- Git Your 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)
