Linkers and Loaders, Low-Low-Low Power Bluetooth, Voice, and NVC
- Linkers and Loaders — the uncorrected manuscript chapters for my Linkers and Loaders, published by Morgan-Kaufman.
- <1mW Bluetooth LTE Transmitter — Consuming just 0.6 milliwatts during transmission, it would broadcast for 11 years using a typical 5.8-mm coin battery. Such a millimeter-scale BLE radio would allow these ant-sized sensors to communicate with ordinary equipment, even a smartphone. Ingenious engineering hacks to make this work.
- Mumble — an open source, low-latency, high-quality voice chat software primarily intended for use while gaming.
- A Guide to Difficult Conversations (Dave Bailey) — your quarterly reminder that non-violent communication exists and is a good thing.
