An Ultrasound Driver With Open Source FPGAs
Ultrasound imaging has been around for decades, but Open Source ultrasound has not. While there are a ton of projects out there attempting to create open ultrasound devices, most of this is concentrated on the image-processing side of things, and not the exceptionally difficult problem of pinging a sensor at millions of times a second, listening for the echo, and running that through a very high speed ADC.

Social VR's best platform is the open web, not pricey headsets
That mainstream appeal for VR continues to elude the mixed reality industry in Western markets is a point I touched on last week when I encouraged startups to embrace China as a go-to-market. I don't think it's so much a case of the Asian market being some anomaly that defies the laws of the hype cycle model but, rather, that its industry is more fluid in adapting and aligning itself to its audience than industry leaders are in the West.

I appeared on the O'Reilly podcast this week to discuss my upcoming keynote at the O'Reilly Fluent Conference. I discuss the idea of "configurability" (which I first learned encountered in Aram Sinnreich's work) and how the ability to configure your experience of the web (choosing what shows up on your screen, what data your computer emits, which app stores you use, and whom you trust) is the key to keeping the internet free, fair and open.
