Some pubs are more closed than others #InTheSaddle
As well as the #3Dprinted designs going round that we'll be printing, I've worked up a #lasercut #COVID19 visor design, so we can use the laser-cutters too. This takes 1min 18secs to cut, vs 44mins for the faster of the 3D prints. Still need to get it fully OKed by the medical folk, but I'm pleased with where I've got to with it so far
@ntnsndr posted a great idea about "public remote works" programs.
Public work programs like building roads were big part of the New Deal.
What could be similar projects that could be done remotely during this crisis?
- Gathering Census data and doing other phone interviews for surveys.
- Translations, transcriptions, recording audiobooks.
Writing an article about this to Mutual Interest media co-op.
Any ideas and retoots appreciated!!

In other 1970s #socialist technology histories, I've written up my notes from reading Cybernetic Revolutionaries, about #StaffordBeer, #cybernetics and #Chile http://www.mcqn.net/mcfilter/archives/books/blog_all_dogeared_pages_cybernetic_revolutionaries_by_eden_medina.html
