Hacking Your Car - Driving Towards a smarter future

Inspired by everything from Star Trek to the Tesla car, I've embarked on a journey to transform my truck from mundane to something that is more than meets the eye. Ever since I was old enough to drive, I've dreamed of having a car with a computerized dashboard, but it seemed out of reach until recently. With the advent of affordable tiny embedded computers like the Arduino and Raspberry Pi I was finally ready to make this a reality. I wanted a system that could grow with my dreams, so I created CADI, an open source Computer Aided Dashboard Instrumentation system. I'll take you with me from concept to integration, taking a look at how I choose my hardware, what I've learned trying to integrate with my car's electronics, what it can do today, and where I'd like to take it moving forward. If you've ever wanted something more than that stock radio & analog A/C controls you'll want to check out project CADI (projectcadi.com).

Having trouble finding time to write your blog post. Me too.

I want to have a dedicated time to work on my blog post each week, I figured it would be great to schedule a time to blog and be with other WordPress people.

Let's get together and write and talk some, but be a support network to get our blog posts written.

This is not a help session, it is to post blogs.

This is not an information session, it is to post on your own website.

I plan on two in the morning per Month on Tuesdays or Wednesdays... Depending on my teaching schedule. Hope you to see you there.

NOTE - The library has free wifi. If you want a secure internet connection, bring your own hotspot - one will not be provided. The library does have secure computers right outside the conference 2 meeting room. The meeting room will change based on availability

Listen to Jay Senter, editor and publisher, of the Shawnee Mission Post, give an overview of their decision to start charging a subscription fee for full access to their community news website in 2017, and how that decision affected traffic to their site, their social media presence and their relationship with trolls online.
You'll learn:
  • When community news is your product, why readers have to be a key part of your business model.
     
  • How charging for content fundamentally changes your incentives and your relationship with your audience.
     
  • How putting up a paywall had major (unexpected) benefits in their experience with trolls.
