This week’s meditation was to create an electronic ritual. After a lot of soul searching about what is a ritual, I concluded that a ritual must at the minimum have a sense of repeatability and (for me) be an act of mindfulness. For the meditation I decided to ritualize the act of computing.
I’ve struggled with temporality and impermanence for as long as I can remember. Maybe it has something to do with my upbringing by political refugees.

The Node MCU is an open source IoT platform which is based on the ESP8266, a low-cost WiFi chip. It can do basically anything a MKR 1000 or an Arduino Uno can do, but at a fraction of the price.

Last week I purchased a couple of Raspberry Pi Zero Ws and I set one up today to run headless. Setting up SSH on pi is pretty tricky to do if you don’t want to bother with all the peripherals. Pi Zeros only have 2 micro usb ports - one for power and one for usb - so you would need an otg hub in order to extend your usb functions. I don’t have a hub so I wanted to SSH directly into the Pi for the first time. I’ll outline the process that I had here.
