Please attend the presentation by Karl Anderson describing the Futel project.
Saturday October 15th, 4 pm
Futel: An Immobile Phone Company
Futel appears to be nothing more than a collection of payphones installed in public locations, no different than the phones found on any street corner. Except these ones are being installed, not removed. And they work, usually, and they’re free. And if the caller doesn’t have a human to interact with, one might be provided.
Find out what we hope to achieve by starting a free telephone network. In addition to discussing the struggles of putting phones on the street, we will describe our spiritual ancestry from phone phreaks to mail artists to fare evaders, and our reasons for creating useful and nonuseful devices out of discarded junk.
Karl Anderson is an experimenter who is good at thinking up projects but bad at predicting whether or not they will be practical. With C.H.U.N.K. 666, he has constructed amphibious human-powered vehicles out of trash. With the Church of Robotron, he has built a skill testing and training facility, indoctrination center, and reading room to reinforce the post-apocalyptic survival tenets of a coin-operated video game.
Flask is a popular Python package for developing web applications. Flask is considered a “micro” framework with a simple core and numerous extensions for database integration, form validation, authentication and more.
During the class Bruce will demonstrate a simple website using Flask in a Python virtual environment. Topics will include the model-view-controller (MVC) paradigm, Jinja2 templates and if time permits, integrating a simple SQLite database using SQLAlchemy.
– Some prior knowledge of Python
– Bring a personal laptop if you want to create the website during the class. (Code will be provided.)
