    Off to Belgium… A lecture at the MIAT

    05/21/2011 // Comments Off on Off to Belgium… A lecture at the MIAT

    Last year the folks at the MIAT (Museum for Industrial Archaeology and Textile) in Gent, Belgium asked if we would make donation to their exhibit called World Wide Work.  They have since asked me to come and talk at the museum about the origins of Recompute, which is an honor.  I have never been to Belgium, so I am looking forward to the trip, besides I have been working so much on Recompute this is kind of a nice little vacation, although it is mostly business. The lecture is at the MIAT, Thursday night May 26th.

    Please see this link for more information.  Hope to get the lecture and some photos up at the event soon.

    So about a month or so ago we sent a Recompute to Ireland to be part of the Science Gallery’s exposition called Green Machines.  It is an exhibit for Green Design from around the globe.  This is the 5th European exhibition that Recompute has been featured in.  They shot a little video about Recompute below.  The exhibit wraps up in about three weeks, so if you are in Dublin hit it up.

    Just got interviewed by the Business Makers Show!

    Just click the link above to listen to the whole interview.  In other news the engineer and producer of the business show John Whiteside got a chance to use a Recompute for a few days of recording and editing.  His feedback was quite posotive.  There should be a complete reveiw soon
