Outdoor wall decor ideas – 15 ways to brighten up garden walls and fences via Ideal Home [Shared]

We put a lot of thought into interior decorating ideas, while often the exterior of our homes gets neglected. But outdoor wall decor ideas are an easy way of brightening up an uninspiring outdoor space. They can bring colour and character to gardens all year round, not just over the summer months.

Whether your outdoor area is large or small, think of the outdoor wall space as an extended decorating opportunity. Look for ideas that will turn it into a colourful focal point feature or a calming oasis to act as the backdrop for your garden seating or dining area.

The customers who repeatedly buy doomed products via The Hustle [Shared]

Are there customers that nearly ALWAYS make the wrong decisions about new products? There might be. In this article, The Hustle dives into who they might be and what they might mean to companies. – Douglas

The customers who repeatedly buy doomed products – The Hustle

But it turns out that not every customer who voraciously buys new products is good for business.

In recent years, research has suggested that a certain fraction of consumers are particularly skilled at picking out products that are destined to fail, or get discontinued.

They’re called harbingers of failure, or harbinger customers.

How to Make a Mason Bee House for Your Garden via Lifehacker [Shared]

How to Make a Mason Bee House for Your Garden

How to Make a Mason Bee House for Your Garden via Lifehacker [Shared]

Gardeners know that having bees around is a big help in the garden. Some gardeners even turn to urban beekeeping to attract some industrious pollinators to the yard (and reap the reward: honey). If you’re not quite ready for full-on beekeeping, you can still get in on the game by attracting solitary bees with a mason bee house, which gives mason bees a place to reproduce. These species are usually indigenous, as they aren’t cultivated for their honey production and can still be industrious pollinators.

Why skyscrapers are so short – Works in Progress

Why skyscrapers are so short - Works in Progress

There’s a pattern that we frequently see in the development of a new technology. Initially, the practical functionality is limited by the technology itself – what’s built and used is close to the limit of what the technology is physically capable of doing. As the technology develops and its capabilities improve, there’s a divergence between what a technology can physically do and what it can economically do, and you begin to see commercialized versions that have lower performance but are more affordable. Then, as people begin to build within this envelope of economic possibility, capability tends to get further constrained by legal restrictions, especially if the new technology has any (real or perceived) negative externalities.

Neural Network Identifies Bird Calls, Even On Your Pi via Hackaday

By techiq@welchwrite.com (Douglas E. Welch) on Jun 27, 2022 08:30 am

Recently, we’ve stumbled upon the extensive effort that is the BirdNET research platform. BirdNET uses a neural network to identify birds by the sounds they make, and is a joint project between the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the Chemnitz University of Technology. What strikes us is – this project is impressively featureful and accessible for a variety of applications. No doubt, BirdNET is aiming to become a one-stop shop for identifying birds as they sing.

There’s plenty of ways BirdNET can help you. Starting with likely the most popular option among us, there are iOS and Android apps – giving the microphone-enabled “smart” devices in our pockets a feature even the most app-averse hackers can respect. However, the BirdNET team also talks about bringing sound recognition to our browsers, Raspberry Pi and other SBCs, and even microcontrollers. We can’t wait for someone to bring BirdNET to a RP2040! The code’s open-source, the models are freely available – there’s hardly a use case one couldn’t cover with these.
