In LA: Apple - Retail - Youth Workshops

Apple Youth Workshops - Be a filmmakerI happened to notice this sign today in the Apple Store at the Sherman Oaks Fashion Square. Apple is holding 1 1/2 hour workshops on Music, Movies and Photos at most of their stores.

Here are the short descriptions from the Apple web site...

Music Workshop

Using GarageBand, we’ll teach kids to compose a song with loops, beats, and even their own vocals. At the end of the workshop, they’ll have a finished song on a CD and a workbook to use with other music projects. Please register for February workshops.

Movie Workshop

This workshop will teach kids how to import footage, crop video clips, and add special effects to produce their own movie with iMovie. When they’ve finished, these budding filmmakers can take home their masterpiece on a DVD, as well as a workbook full of tips for future moviemaking projects. Please register for March workshops.

Photo Workshop

Using iPhoto, we’ll show kids how to edit, print, and share photos and how to make photo albums and slideshows. At the end of the workshop they’ll have a DVD and a workbook to use for other photo projects. Please register for April workshops.

There is a waiting list for upcoming events, but I see the April 25 event still has some openings. Visit the Workshop page for listings of all stores and events.

This DIY domino clock tells the time using three LED-lit tiles via Arduino Blog

After coming across Carbon Design Group’s Domino Wall Clock, which uses electronic magnetic coil motors to reveal white dots, Instructables member “Kothe” decided to create a simplified version of their own. The clock is comprised of three custom dominoes — the first tile for hours, the second and third for minutes. Unlike its inspiration, Kothe’s device uses addressable RGB LEDs as dots that allow for a variety of colors to shine through.

Onion Pi makes your web traffic anonymous via Open Electronics

Hmmm, might be an easy (and relatively cheap) way to play around with Tor and learn a bit more about this anonymizing service. -- Douglas Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.
