I spent a good part of the day today stumbling around in the heat at the Detroit Maker Faire. Among other things, I did the following…
I got to see an incredibly cool demonstration of a turn-of-the-century steam-powered threshing machine put on by the employees of Greenfield Village.
I got to introduce Clementine to the team at Backyard Brains, who had her help with one of their electrophysiology experiments using a freshly severed cockroach leg.
All in all, I’d say it was a pretty good day… except for the part where we had to say goodbye, for the fifth and final time, to our friends Amelia and Ruth, who are moving off to California at daybreak tomorrow.
