It might be a German word for a hack that comes to life. Which is what I am living.
It is much as you would expect falling into a story, a movie, or a game would be, and luckily I have read enough stories, seen enough films, and played enough games to know that mettle is the thing. Unless it’s cleverness, or it might be bravery. And sometimes it’s thread tension.
I am loving being at MIT as much as I ever do. I feel like I can stand still and still get throughput. What a place.

Len Tower showing me Miters, a makers’ lab, earlier this week.
On that same day, he showed me the model railroad zone where there is a model of the Green Building (see the Radome and the weather tower?) that you can play Tetris on . It was an actual hack of the building; see the photo below the maquette.
The Green Building is Building 54, where Planetary is, and followers of this life will recall several previous adventures in the building and on the roof.
Today, Len took me out to put up posters for the CGB IAP sessions – my first lecture is Monday. We were in tunnels and stairwells and elevators and loading docks and so many buildings I lost count.
The posters look like this. Scan the QR code! Does it go to my web site, a photo of Lemmy, or to a cat video?
