This looks too good to be true. The prices I saw on their Indiegogo look reasonable for a platform that could be the next great springboard for DIY robot hackers.

So What’s the Fuss About Node.JS?

Site Point - Node.JS

Site Point - Node.JS

You may have heard about Node.JS and wondered what the heck it was. Well, it's pretty cool. It's built on Google's V8 Javascript engine. It's used for quickly writing fast, scalable network applications. Node.JS is geared towards creating real-time interactivity on the web. If you've wanted to program chat application, a stock ticker, or anything that required instant data updating pushed out to thousands of users, Node.JS is what you've been looking for. I picked up the book "Jump Start Node.JS" from SitePoint. I've mentioned SitePoint before, I really do love their books. You can also check out the Node.JS group at http://nodejs.org

The Avengers is Out on DVD and Blu-Ray

The Avnegers DVDIt's hard to believe it, but Marvel's "The Avengers" is out on DVD and Blu-Ray.   It seems like this movie was just in theaters.  Oh wait, it was, like, just a few weeks ago. I have a special interest in this movie.  A very good friend of mine worked on the film, and is credited for his work on the Visual Effects team.  To me, that is very, very cool.  I wish I had credit on a blockbuster movie, but that would require me to actually be talented in some aspect of movie making. Anyway, for those of you who don't know what this movie is about:
Nick Fury is director of S.H.I.E.L.D, an international peace keeping agency. The agency is a who's who of Marvel Super Heroes, with Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When global security is threatened by Loki and his cohorts, Nick Fury and his team will need all their powers to save the world from disaster. Written by WellardRockard You can read more about it at IMDB - or just go watch the damned movie already! PS - makes a great stocking stuffer - Christmas is less than 3 months away!
