whoa... the encoders are serial? I guess there's a lot of stuff in there.
the pinout is on page 26 but look on page 31:
apparently the encoders power on, and report their absolute position with
a serial data packet, and then they switch over to quadrature to report
movement pulses. Maybe this is why the pinout includes "battery" and
there is supposed to be a battery to allow the encoders to "remember"
where they were before?
i guess if we fix the battery, and fix whatever loose wires are causing
servos 1 and 2 to not pass tests, then it will probably work.

There are more Yaskawa documents here:
The robot was made by Yaskawa which is now know as Motoman (subsidiary
of Yaskawa). However, it seems like Yaskawa does not put any
documentation about this on their website. I don't know who made the
encoder but I think it might be Stegmann.

HELP! I am an artist doing complicated social projects and I need a web
presence that makes sense. For instance, I am starting an alternative
credit rating bureau, starting with one experimental loan to one person. It
feels important to have a good way to communicate about this. I am not sure
where to start, what to ask or search for, or how to value it.
I have a small amount of money from a grant to work with, and I'm happy to
do a money thing or a trade thing, and I'd even just be happy to get some
Thanks a million!

I don't normally post a lot of stuff on international tech politics to
hackerspace lists, but I think it's worth generating a conversation around
this. My friends from Russia have been describing Putin's insane
environment of fearmongering and national media control and censorship.
This article talks effectively a national walled garden.
How do you fight this?
A totally badass and very knowledgeable and kind friend of mine is
co-hosting this event. I'll be there...come with me! :] Here's some info:

"come kickit with some great folks at a hands-on radical digital mapping
we'll be mapping data sets about (1) charter schools replacing public
schools in oakland, (2) payouts & settlements from OPD police brutality,
and (3) foreclosures in the bay. good practice to learn how to make an
engaging digital map to illustrate whatever struggles you might be in."
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS!!!
The AMP Zine deadline is August 18th by email or postmarked by August 15th!
The Anti-Eviction Mapping Project is making a zine! The zine is part of the
Narratives of Displacement project and aims to share individual and
community stories, thoughts and feelings surrounding the gentrification of San
Francisco and the Bay Area and the resulting flood of evictions.
Reflections on home, community and displacement are welcome.
Be creative! Entries can be as small as one word or a tiny doodle, and up
to 800 words. Potential submission formats include: poem, short story,
essay, thought, doodle, sketch, painting, comic, print, stamp, quote, joke,
collage, pretty much anything you can or cannot think of.
The zine is open to anyone who has something to express related to these
issues, but we would especially love to see contributions from folks who
have been personally impacted in one way or another by gentrification
Please specify if you would like to remain anonymous. Otherwise we would
love to credit you for your work in the zine. We will not edit submissions,
but we do have a particular political and artistic vision for the zine that
some pieces may not fit into. However, our goal is to be as open and
accessible as possible, especially as a platform for typically marginalized
voices and stories.
Questions and submissions can be sent to ampzine(a)riseup.net and/or
Anti-Eviction Mapping Project, 558 Capp Street, SF, CA, 94110.

Some background on AMP, from our website:
The Anti-Eviction Mapping Project is a data-visualization, data analysis,
and digital storytelling collective documenting the dispossession of San
Francisco Bay Area residents. The project seeks to de-isolate those
displaced and act as a tool for collective resistance.
We use maps and digital storytelling to make the often invisible processes
of eviction, displacement and gentrification clearly seen.
We have released multiple maps, including our:
- Eviction Pledge Map, where you can look up an address to determine its
eviction history, and pledge never to rent or buy from a landlord or
speculator who has profited off of displacement.
- Our Crowdsourced Map of Loss and Displacement, where you can share your
story, photo, of video on a geolocation platform, and add to the map.
- Time-lapse maps of Ellis Act Evictions and all No-Fault Evictions that
have taken place since 1997. We have also mapped evictions of seniors and
people with disabilities over the last three years, with information about
the landlords and speculators who have displaced them.
- Map of serial evictions.
- Map of income inequality.
- Map of no-fault evictions surrounding tech bus stops.
- And more!

St. just now said he would do it -- but added the important caveat:
he has to be able to get in. He says the last times he's tried his
card of late, it did not work, and asks if the reader was now
for my part, unfortunately i in fact can *not* do it.
& may i add that if someone has to drive to do the door unlock thing,
perhaps that person can also swing by and give Mr. St. a ride? that
would be great, though not strictly necessary.....
