After confidentaly turning over the reigns of S#arp Architecture to the adept and au fait hands of Alec Whittington, I capriciously announced that I'd be turning my writing attentions towards robotics...with the diabolical intentions of taking over the world (obviously).
It became apparent after a few posts that the direction I began taking was diverging far from the subject matter of my esteemed colleagues at devlicio.us. Rather than dilute the theme of devlicio.us, I figured it was time to create the proper context for such topics...
It's my great pleasure to announce the humble beginnings of SharpRobotica.com. This blogging community (with an author population of uno at the moment, being yours truly) emphasizes and explores the software side of robotics. While there are many robotic sites, the focus of SharpRobotica.com, accordingly, is in bringing professional software techniques and insight to this vernal, yet burgeoning, industry.
For years, hardware lagged far behind software in the world of robotics; developers were tirelessly constrained by the performance and capabilities of the available hardware platforms. But with the hardware of robotics becoming startlingly sophisticated, there is now incredible opportunity and demand for solid algorithms and software solutions for balancing the scale once again, by creating software which can adeptly take advantage of available robotics hardware to conquer ever challenging contexts such as underwater, space, entertainment, hazardous environments, and in the home.
So if you have an interest in robotics and/or interested in applying your software skills to a completely new context, many of the posts and discussions might be right up your alley. Also, if you're interested in being an author on SharpRobotica.com, sign up as a user and let me know you're interested!
So while I'll still be showing up now and again on devlicio.us...I invite you to also subscribe for a gander to SharpRobotica.com.
P.S. Thanks Mr. Tompkins (audacious founder of CodeBetter.com and devlicio.us) for the support of this announcement!
