As someone pointed out you have to have some idea of the project you are looking for. I have found many software projects on Freshmeat/Freecode just by going there 3 or 4 times a week. Sometimes there will be things listed that I had not given any thought to and then I see it listed there found it intriguing went to the web page and checked it out. Later on I would go back and download it because I would recall months later when the need arised it was there. Trying do that with google, what would be the search string, "New software"? Especially for us not searching for anything specific and just wanted to find new open source software in general.
I seem to recall that years and years ago Steve Ciarcia wrote a series of article in his Circuit Cellar magazine about making sensors and a home built EEG. If I recall correctly it used relatively inexpensive parts and off the shelf sensors when necessary. All designed for the hobbyist and much lower in cost. Of course I may be wrong. But still wondering, whats the big hoo haw about something this expensive?
find out if safety gadgets will help them improve their maintenance standards
Beekeeper, distiller, brewer, weaver, apothecary, farrier, metal worker, farmer and lots of other occupations in the same line. Without technology or reliable power all of this will become more critical and more labor intensive requiring above average skills.
crowbars, prybars, hammers and chisels, seen them all used on the boxes. Plus in some areas will be like a watering hole in the wild. All of the predators will gather there waiting.
I recall some time back when law enforcement and the postal inspectors were pointing out that cluster mailboxes just makes it easier to steal mail. Particularly as all of the mail is now located in one spot. So now we'll have an even higher density of mail to be stolen?
sounds an awful lot like military basic training.
have to agree that it is no secret, we hear about it and talk about here in Phoenix on a regular basis. Almost everyone who has lived here for any length of time has had it at least once. AS another poster pointed out it is like the bubonic plague here. Almost anyone who lived here for more than a year or two are aware that the jack rabbits here are infected with it. But mentioned it to someone from the more urbanized areas they are always taken by surprise. Must be the ultra urban snobbery.

Just because his opinions does not matches yours you will not read or view movies based upon his works? Now has anyone find this to be disturbing? Because he has opinions which differs from the current world view he needs to be shunned and ignored?
So who really has the closed mind and narrow point of view? Does it not work both way?
Oh wait no it doesn't, it only works for those with the biggest bat, so who is really the bully here?
just have a wide spectrum receiver, enough samples and a powerful enough computer and you are in. Just leave a datalogger connected to the receiver, collect the sample, decrypt it with a laptop, set up a transmitter to run through the possible challenge & response codes and you're in.
