Speed Interview with co-Chair Addie Wagenknecht

by Addie Wagenknecht on July 28, 2015

What do you plan to do at this years OHS?
OHS always feels like a family reunion for me (in a good way!) so I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again and many new faces as well ..
Favorite website of the moment?
I read my twitter every morning, does that count?
What’s your most used OS electronic or component?
 
Can I count my operating system as a component? :) I use Ubuntu heavily and every day..
What are you working on or thinking about right now?

I’m developing a top secret project right now with Phoenix Perry and some other hardware dev people which we will probably announce this Fall.. I’m also also touching basis with the deep lab gang these days..

What’s your favorite junk food?
It’s a tie between a really good pizza, candy and soda
How can we find out more about you?

The standard ways:  my website I try to keep up to date with whats upcoming, and I post often on twitter or instagram

Can you share a picture of what describes you? Here is a piece of my art which I make using RC drones and organic pigments..

Speed Interview with OHSummit Keynote AnnMarie Thomas

by Addie Wagenknecht on July 27, 2015

What do you plan to do at this years OHS? Meet amazing people, and tell some stories about unusual collaborations and playful learning.
What’s your most used OS electronic or component? Conductive play dough? If we’re truly talking “most used” I’d have to say Lilypad Arduino.
Favorite website of the moment? Hard to answer… So many for so many different purposes. Since I’m writing this while on a multi-week trip and am needing to stay in touch with my research group, I’ll have to go with Google hangouts. (does that count as a website?)
What are you working on or thinking about right now? Lots of really fun collaborations that merge art and technology: one with a chef, one with a felt artist, one with a music group, and a few others.
What’s your favorite junk food? coffee, coffee, and more coffee.
