  1. Embedded Ethics — Harvard project that integrates ethics modules into courses across the standard computer science curriculum. Those modules are straightforward, online, and open access.
  2. Living IOT: A Flying Wireless Platform on Live InsectsWe 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.

  4. Looky What We Made — showcase of Glitch apps.
  5. Git Your SQL Togetherwhy 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)
