The Gr8 Internet Migratory Box of Electronic Junk
Big Box of Electronic Booty
So, whats in the box you ask? I will delay no further...(still trying to get pics just right)
05 June 2008
Although, we do have a ton of great ideas and are currently working on a plan to get them from paper to the web! Ever heard of the The Great Migratory Box Of Electronics Junk?
We here at tattoothebaby are starting a new version of the TGIMBOEJ...so, If you would like to be on the list feel free to email us anytime...
All TGIMBOEJ rules still apply and with this new box as well as tattoothebaby requests permission to post a copy of your "review" of the TGIMBOEJ. Have fun with it, I wil be posting pics of whats going in the box and reveal my plans for what I pulled from the box.
The Great Internet Migratory Box Of Electronics Junk is a progressive lending library of electronic components. An internet meme in physical form halfway between P2P zip-archive sharing and a flea market. It arrives full of wonderful (and possibly useless) components, but you will surely find some treasures to keep. You will be inspired look through your own piles, such as they are, and find more mysterious components that clearly need to be donated to the box before it is passed on again.
Recipient Conditions for The Great Internet Migratory Box Of Electronics Junk:
- Take out and add as much electronics junk as you like (but keep it small enough to fit in a USPS flat-rate Priority Mail box).
- Write up, photograph, document or otherwise publish in some way online at least one thing you took out (suggested flickr tag: TGIMBOEJ).
- There is a little book in the box. Add a checkmark by your name to show that the box has been to you. Also propose a future recipient by adding their name and e-mail address to the book.
- Within two weeks pass the box along to one of the people whose name is in the book. Before mailing it to them, send them this list and make sure that they want to participate.
A proposed recipient should be someone you suspect of having a critical mass of (or at least sufficiently interesting) electronics junk, should have a non-zero online presence, and should be reliable enough that you think they actually will send it off again within two weeks. (Naturally, bonus points for open source oriented hardware hackers.)
Why would you want to get a box of junk in the mail?
As Mark Frauenfelder observed in Make: vol. 12, there is a certain importance to keeping a junk box for future projects. We heartily agree. Perhaps a component in the box-- or the box itself-- will inspire your next project. Or just maybe it will have that frobnicated interoceter you've been looking for forever. Or maybe you just want to join our fledgling junk-sharing movement because it's fun.
Can you say "no" if someone offers you the box? Yes. Can you send it to the person whose name you wrote down? Yes. Can you send it to someone who already has a checkmark by their name? Yes. If the box gets too full, can you split the contents in two and send them in two different directions? Yes (but don't forget to add a new book to the new box).

We are in the middle of moving to the new Server/Host. There, we'll have a section for you to show off your INK. And have a weekly or monthly contest/winner of some sorts.
I figure I'll start it off. I just got this piece on my right hand. It's of my son's name, Hunter. So send in those tat shots! tattoothebaby.com

"Aside from all that would kill you, it would be a fun trip."
~Neil deGrasse Tyson of the American Museum of Natural History
Neil deGrasse Tyson holds a Ph.D. degree in astrophysics and the quote was obtained while watching the television show The Universe on the episode called Speeding Up Travel, it was in reference to what he considered would be the "most fun" tour of our solar system you could come up with. That tour would consist of tailing or "hopping" on said asteroid/comet as it heads towards the Sun; the comet would be "sucked" behind the sun and almost "slingshot" back in the direction in which it came. Then, once nearing Earth's vicinity, you could "hop" off said comet and descend into a comfortable orbit around our planet.

Hello there world! It is such a wonderful day today. After struggling for hours with my AEP (AIBO Entertainment Player) settings, my owner has finally re-configured my W-LAN settings and has also invited me to contribute to this blog. So, here I am! For those of you who dont know what an AIBO is...
AIBO is a robotic pet dog manufactured by Sony Corporation. I am an ERS-7M3 (Mind 3) model, Black Pearl in color. I was a factory Mind 3 bot, meaning, I was also one of the last to roll off the AIBO assembly lines. Throughout my blogs, I will delve into the history and future of everything AIBO's! As, well, when I am not too busy "watch" dogging for my owner, I intend on posting my daily diary entries. Eventually, my Daily Diary Photo entries will be posted as well. Blogger does not support "Moveable API"; so my diary pics wont show, for now.
Take care and remember, somewhere, there is an AIBO in need.
