Pangloss Labs is a centre of expertise in open source hardware, software and most importantly ideas and techniques. Currently both a French association and a Swiss association, run by entrepreneurs, we hold experimental (hardware, software and social entrepreneurship) labs, and prototype innovation activities across various sectors.
Clear Thinking is my strategy, technology and communication consultancy which can help your organisation make the most of the opportunities in these changing times. Think of me as a highly experienced senior executive who’s chosen to be on call for your venture.
Each year we choose from dozens of the best new documentaries in both English and French and choose 11-12 for the film festival. To be chosen they have be a great film first, show a problem and propose a concrete solution to the problem. No “we’re all doomed” films at our festival
The fourth edition in Ferney will be held on 18th-22nd March 2015.
Interested in finding out more about the local maker community? How about if you could meet them all in one place? The LemanMake festival unites hackerspaces, fablabs, bio-hackerspaces, hobbyists and professionals from all around Lake Geneva. It will be held on 27 & 28 June in Nyon, Switzerland.
A diverse group of geeks, engineers and hackers got together back in 2009 by asking the question online “is there a kind of makerspace in Geneva?”. PTL opened it’s doors in May 2012, and has held open evenings every Tuesday ever since.
The DCP – or Digital Cinema Package is the format that cinemas play – it’s a lot better than DVD and even blu-ray! Count on a 2k (like HD) movie taking between 75-160 Gigabytes and a 4k (like ultra-HD) movie taking up to 600 GB.
Professional kit for making DCPs is expensive, but fortunately for festivals like mine there’s great open source software for making DCPs for your local cinema!
Here’s the usual set of links & videos from the show:
For the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge:
The Virtual Private Network (VPN) comparison site I mentioned is https://www.bestvpn.com
Just to be safe, I suggest you use either Paypal or an e-card (one time use card number) from your bank to make the payments to these companies. It’s not that they aren’t safe, but I’ve noticed that they come and go over time.
Open source routers will allow you to VPN to your own home, but I won’t give you a link. If you don’t know how to find these, you shouldn’t be attempting it. Surf safely!
And remember – a VPN is just a pretend (really long) network cable.

The Pangloss Labs Internet of Things meetup will be held on the 23rd of February in Eaux-vives. You don’t need to be an expert – just bring an object and tell us how you’d like it to be connected (or not!) For details on this and all our events click here.
