Fifty-five years ago, hard drives were only something you found in research
labs. They were very expensive pieces of cutting edge technology. As the world
rebounds from the flooding in Thailand that has hampered hard drive production
world wide (but this might be the big push that people need to switch to SSDs?),
I thought you'd enjoy this photo I tripped across on the internet of a 5mb hard
drive from 1956.
Some of you must be stressed. Poor time management is making it difficult for a few of you to stay on top of your work. I have already cut one assignment because of snow days, and it would not be fair to you if I cut any more materials or opportunities from the course.
You need to have the following completed for next Friday (no exceptions):
1) An updated blog of your OBP progress (w/ the link emailed to me ASAP)
2) All the Arduino tutorials (tracking sheet signed in all 14 steps)
3) The Arduino fridge temperature monitor extension (if you are in 3MI)
4) The Khan Academy intro to programming (you can do more lessons for extra credit, if you desire)
5) The Scratch tutorials (everyone), the Scratch game (mandatory for 3MI, optional for 3EI)
6) Letter to Mark Zuckerberg re: Digital privacy
Some of you will need to come in every lunch hour, as well as complete some of this material at home.
You also only have 5 OBP days left to finish your project as well. Tick tock goes the clock, I am afraid.
The room is also an absolute mess at the back. It is 100% clean by the time I arrive back on Friday, or I am afraid we will be spending the entire period on Friday cleaning Room 132 from top to bottom. One last warning.
This will be the on-line binder for TEJ3/4MI
