This weekend (21/09 > 22/09/2013), for Brussels Design September, Mathieu Gabiot, Martin Lévêque, Raphaël Bastide and myself are organising a 2 days workshop to teach designers about free licences applied to product design.
We will introduce our 16 participants to the licenses available and will experience them by modifying and building a libre piece of furniture created by Mathieu.
This is the first workshop from the new collective called Libre Objet. Unfortunatly we no longer have room in Brussels for any other participant. But another one is open in Mons for “Quinzaine Numérique” in the beginning of October.
You are still invited to pay us a visit if you wish at RealizeBXL.

What? Command-Line? Yes. Exactly. That thing with the computer where you see characters flying by just like when Neo found out about the Matrix. It seems cryptic and magic, doesn’t it? People doing this can only do illegal things for sure. Not.
The console, where all those commands happened to be typed, has been around since computers have monitors. And they still exist in modern computing. They come really handy for a lot of things and especially when the graphical interface is going bad or not even there at all.
#CLIfe is a workshop organized by Michael Murtaugh and I to teach you the basis of command-line manipulation, show you how useful (lifesaving?) this can be and have some fun with it. For the more advanced users, the workshop is oriented to CLI experimentations and knowledge sharing. Isn’t CLI a lifestyle afterall?
Saturday, 19 October 2013 Begin(14:00) -> End(18:00) Variable 80, rue Gallait Schaerbeek BYOD = Bring Your Own Device. All Operating Systems welcome.
(Yes, that means you too, Billies and Appelsientjes).
Need some motivations to come?
You want to resize 1000 jpegs and watermark them in one go. You want to stop worrying every time your software publisher changes (the order of) the icons. You think "sudo" is a martial art. You want to post to Facebook/Twitter/Identica/Tumblr/Wordpress/Blogger without a browser. You want to know your network settings without making 5 clicks. You think that plumbing is a computer skill. Christian Clavier is your DJ name. You're ready to take the red pill. You are a poet.
Don’t bring your mouse.
While searching for song covers for this weekly #CoverTuesday, I often end up watching total strangers covering famous songs in different ways. Most of the time, it’s not quite good. Sometimes, I even feel pity for them. But this one, although not perfect, had something special in his interpretation. Something touching, I believe. So here is Frankie Simon covering Radiohead’s Paranoid Android.
