On my iPhone…Donna Proactive Meeting Management

Donna Proactive Meeting Management

Donna app

I don't have a lot of meetings in my day, but those that do know how difficult it can be to manage and keep track of everything you have to do and everywhere you need to be. Enter Donna, a proactive iPhone app that helps you keep track of everything, tells you when to leave for your meetings, notifies others when you might be late and even gives you directions to the next meeting location.

I am a big fan of proactive apps, when done well, because it relieves my mind from trying to keep everything in my head and allows me to focus on the task at hand.

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.
