Francis Fukuyama, DIY Droner


Famous author and public intellectual Francis Fukuyama, ("End of History", etc) is now a DIY Droner! He's blogging his project here. He's just doing a RC quad now, but no doubt now that he's got the bug he'll be shooting for more "real drone" things soon ;-)

  • Very interesting. I read "On the Origins of Political Order" just two months ago. I had a few issues with some of the content and editing - the section on biology has some incorrect statements (e.g. structure of the neocortex) and could have included many more relevant findings informed by recent research. However, the book as a whole is very good - I'm not aware of any better volumes on the subject - and I look forward to the upcoming continuation. 

  • @Chris was about to mail you about this, of all the forums which have trolled on the internet, the one with the largest fraction of "theorists" and "crazy ones", with highest level of tolerance for variation from norm is diy drones. So i think Francis should find this his suitable home if he continues on his path of becoming a UAV addict ;)

  • @chris may be he sees future in drones :)

  • welcome to diydrone francis! :) i wonder if we could get our hands on nicholas sparks and neil gaiman hahaha 

  • It's exactly 2 years - 1 week since I flew something on the Stanford oval.
