Support science and education with Wide Computing
Larry Dickson's Kickstarter project intends to revive the neglected half of computing that is the most friendly to original science.
This countercultural Wide Computing brings raw data from multiple inexpensive sensors, and even robotics, within reach of anyone with a C compiler. Simple, independent programs handle transmission and postprocessing, including heavy data streams. "Hiccups" can be prevented even if latency limits are very tight. No complex GUIs or interface specifications are needed.
The beauty of this is that it brings real science within reach of volunteers. You can make original contributions without multi-million dollar budgets and corporate bureaucratic approval. This is really important, because it can restore honesty to science!
In addition it is an educational tool that is unequalled in the bureaucratic computing world. The friendly new concept of a graphics slave has roused particular interest. More information is on the web site LAZM.org.

The New Bedford, sailing out of State Pier, was keeping vigil when Texas Tower No. 4 callapsed off the New Jersey coast during a January 1961 nor'easter.
