Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby of MAP are making all your nerdy dreams come true with their latest computer building kit, a cooperative effort with Kano. It really is technology stripped down to a step by step manual revealing the mysterious inner workings of computers to people like us, who honestly don’t have much of a clue. The single board Raspberry Pi platform allows users to attach multiple components. Its case is clear for good visibility and for the most part wide open which encourages the curious process, “Our two-part bumper case provides protection while encouraging Kano users to experiment and make.” Each kit comes with a wireless keyboard, the single board, a speaker module, punchy orange packaging and accessories. A Kickstarter campaign to crowd fund the project has launched, get your geek on.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
