Fabacademy is not rocket science.
Great to meet you here. In 2021 I am doing the Fabacademy at Waag in Amsterdam. Navigating the coming and going of corona restrictions. My goals is to lift the veil of the weird tech that is ruling so much of my world and not only understand better how it works, but also direct these powers to work in my interest.
I have had many ideas on what I could make this five months, but for now I have settled on a ferry clock. A simple, and nice project which will allow me to experiment with all the techniques I am going to learn these months.
I wrote a lot of documentation because I didn't have the time to write a little.

What the hell is a ferry clock?
Is is a device that helps you decide which ferry to take when you leave the house. When you live in an area invested with ferries, this is a welcome utility.

The other big project during these five months is this very website. I hope to be able to document here everything I do.
Check the menus and search function to navigate around and find what you are looking for.
