Mini things make my heart sing.

I love mini stuff. Little versions of bigger things, in perfect detail. Total joy trigger. Like this mini food made from polymer clay at Parts and Crafts.

I totally lost my mind this weekend when I came across minimaterials.com. It’s two great tastes that go great together. I mean… LOOK AT THIS!

I ordered up a pallet of cinder blocks and a bison skull. Can’t wait to get them.

Here’s a bonus pic of some fresh tiny sushi.

CS50X

Harvard lectures, courseware and assignments for free? Seriously?! 

Yup. edX is amazing. I started CS50X, the online version of Harvard’s popular Intro to Computer Science course. Week 0 was amazing – the lectures are engaging, the support materials and other courseware top notch.

Week 0 concludes with a problem set: create an animation, app or game in Scratch – MIT’s fun visual programming platform. It was on my list to learn Scratch anyway, so I dug in and explored a lot of what Scratch has to offer.

Here’s my game – a fun little ghostbusters “inspired” shooter.
