All throughout the month of June 2021 I will be distributing these Mini WI MadFab Edition to Little Free Libraries. Keep an eye on my instagram story and the r/madisonwi subreddit for more clues on how to get a hold of one.
Baseplate of an iMac G4 purchased off of Craigslist for $20. This machine has a bad logic board. It will be torn apart to refurbish my first Macintosh, the iMac G4 affectionately called “Giga” on my network.
“Anatomical dissection gives the human mind an opportunity to compare the dead with the living, things severed with things intact, things destroyed with things evolving, and opens up the profoundness of nature to us more than any other endeavor or consideration.”
-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 – 1832)
This last weekend I went to go see Bodyworlds at the Milwaukee Public Museum. It was certainly worth the approximate $20 cost for admission. In the late 1970’s Herr Doktor Gunther von Hagens patented his technique for polymer impregnation of biological tissue and revolutionized medical specimens. Doktor von Hagens shatters the stigmata of dead bodies with his tasteful pieces. The donated bodies are perfectly preserved in lifelike poses for inspection by museum goers. The goal of the exhibit is not to create a circus side-show, but rather demonstrate to the public the intricate complexities of the human body, the history of anatomy, and its integration into modern medical science. Do yourself a favor and catch this exhibit.
