Decided on sample template for machines as Infographic - Modules - Interfaces and List of Modules - [1].James working on 50 hp Power Cube - Power Cube WS. Started LifeTrac 5 page.

Monday Jul 22, 2013

Planning week. Talked to Catherine Austin-Fitts. Katie did . Goal for Week: (1) put 6 month plan in Project Manager, (2) prepare design sprint and get up to 24 people in Sprint; (3) Break each machine into placeholders for Modules, Interfaces, and Individual modules. (4) Upadate True Fans database and host first True Fan hangout.

Thu Jul 4, 2013

Rest day from 6 in 60 Documentation. Scheming to the relevance of 3D printing as a critical, not luxury, aspect of machine prototyping. Straw Board reference from Scott Truax and John Motloch. Saw another of the Video Feeds on OSE from Post Growth Institute.

Wed Jul 3, 2013

Redesigned final integration details on backhoe, and assembling pivot to stabilizer legs, boom, stick and tractor mount. Next Culture Research and Training Center. Open Source Appropriate Technologies Paper. Open Source Alternative to Matlab. Planning our first scheduled Design Sprint - Design Sprint - Jul 6, 2013. LifeTrac Development Matrix.

Tue Jul 2, 2013

Struggling with integration detail on Backhoe. Lack of scale prototype and step-by-step procedure means we are figuring things out on the fly for details of fit - thereby extending build time by a day. Main pivot was assembled. Requires careful step-by-step in order to do it on the first try.

Mon July 1, 2013

Swarming on Backhoe and Ironworker build today. Ironworker: pivot plates, blade mount, cylinder mount, cut shaft, and done. Backhoe: bucket attach, boom and stick drilling, cutting of rest of materials, building pivot, cutting shaft, attaching cylinders, adding QA mount, making pins. On Bulldozer Geardown - need to drill out keyways. Need mills. Sweiger: belt. refining Design Sprint#Design Process
