Fwd: Help me promote Maymester course on humanities 'physical computing'

Hi Ben,

I'm teaching a Maymester course titled "Intro to Humanities Physical Computing." The course is based on Arduino and Processing programming. It's a course that does not require any technical expertise (beginners are welcome), but one in which a technical background won't hold anyone back. Most class periods will be devoted to hands-on tutorials, experimentation/prototyping, and collaborative project development.  it's a course that can count toward 3 GEP credits of either IP or HUMA. 

I've attached a flyer. If you wouldn't mind forwarding it to your undergrad students I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks!

Dave

Find: 10% of Americans have a smartphone but no other Internet at home

10% of Americans have a smartphone but no other Internet at home
// Ars Technica

One out of 10 Americans owns a smartphone but has no other Internet service at home, with the poor far more likely to find themselves in this situation than those who are well off, according to a Pew Research Center report released today.

"10 percent of Americans own a smartphone but do not have broadband at home, and 15 percent own a smartphone but say that they have a limited number of options for going online other than their cell phone," Pew Senior Researcher Aaron Smith wrote. "Those with relatively low income and educational attainment levels, younger adults, and non-whites are especially likely to be 'smartphone-dependent.'”

Pew said that 7 percent of Americans are in both categories—a smartphone is their only option for using the Internet at home, and they have few easily available options for going online when away from home. Pew refers to these Americans as "smartphone-dependent."
