Angel was born in Panama but graduated from the University of Washington where he married his wife Carla Black. Angel has been a tinkerer and inventor all his life. In his previous life he made bicycles and computers. Spending winters in Volcan, Panama, Angel started building telescopes. He then turned his attention to making seismometers. He constructed the mechanical parts, designed and built the electronics and wrote the software to create his first seismographs.  Eventually he built his own private seismic network.  Presently he has a nice electronics lab, several 3D printers, a laser cutter, CNC mills, lathes and all the tools a maker might want. He has a passion for making seismographs, including affordable personal seismographs for your home. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/angelrodriguez/raspberry-shake...

Tuesday, July 17 – Bud Huber and Marcelyn Jandreau traveled the Silk Road in Central Asia earlier this year when they visited Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan. They took many photos, and will share their adventure with us. The Silk Road was an ancient network of trade routes that connected the East and the West. It was central to cultural and commercial interaction between them for centuries. Bud and Marcelyn actually walked along some of the same paths that Alexander the Great, Marco Polo, Amir Timur, and Genghis Khan travelled many centuries ago.

We have had Angel talk before and have had a good turnout.

He is the guy who monitored the government sensors on Volcan Baru until they died and the government didn't maintain or repair them.

Angel Rodriguez is married to Carla Black, the worlds biggest grower (and expert) of heliconias. Carla is always a popular speaker at BCP.
