Electrical power (wikipedia)
The instantaneous electrical power P delivered to a component is given by
- P(t) is the instantaneous power, measured in watts (joules per second)
- V(t) is the potential difference (or voltage drop) across the component, measured in volts
- I(t) is the current through it, measured in amperes
If you’re still reading this it’s pretty obvious you can explain things in different ways.
You’ll probably look at your household appliances differently, yet you’ll probably forget the formula.
I think you need both
Something simple. Intuitive. Memorable. Fun.
And the analysis.
Without the first, Communication is very dry, uncomunicative.
Without the second, it’s shallow, hollow.
One’s the balloon, that flutters in the wind, the other is the string and weight, keeping it from flying away.
You notice the balloon, but it’s only there because it hasn’t flown away.
Bicycles are what I love. They’re also my work.
There’s a word, used in Aesthetics, the German Gesamtkunstwerk.
It means a total work.
Doing the store’s interior decorating, I thought of this concept. So that’s what I did.
I also had to dust off some skills I’d not used for a while.
I worked with wood again, I made some bike stands, storage crates, amongst other things.
My father was a antiques restorer, wood is something I’ve worked with all my life.
Fabrics. Again, I’ve made a few things I needed.
Aprons I’m tryin’ out, tote bags, I’ll be doing some messenger bags.
My mother was an upholsterer, so I’m used to sewing.
I found I really enjoyed being with those materials again.
I’ve done some leatherwork for about ten years now. Basic stuff, but I’d like to find the time to expand that.
(All these things will be available).
I make frames.
My goal is to make the best bicycle I can. If there’s something that works I’ll buy it.
If there isn’t, I’ll make it.
Wood, textiles and leather.
Then tell all y’all about it, striking my own balance between the toaster and Wikipedia.
take care. Happy Sunday.
