Just because we moved out of NYC doesn’t mean that we would miss one of our favorite events of the year: World Maker Faire! How do we explain Maker Faire? It’s an Continue reading World Maker Faire 2016: The Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth
Exciting things happen when you wander around New York City and, yesterday, one of those things happened to me! I was running errands around the city when a promotion team stopped me (admittedly, when my face was down in my phone) to hand me a ticket to a special advance screening to the newest film from Continue reading Advance Screening: Captain America: Civil War
Recently, we went to The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore! This program is Comedy Central’s spin-off of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. It replaced the spot of The Colbert Report and is actually filmed in the same studio as Stephen Colbert’s old show on 54th St between 10th and 11th Ave. Larry Wilmore was the “Senior Black Correspondent” on Jon Stewart’s show and was hand-picked by the media mogul to host a comedic and satirical political show in the vein of The Daily Show but from the perspective of underrepresented voices.

In this challenge, high school-aged students from all over the world have six weeks to design, build, and program stellar robots and then bring them to competition. The New York City Regional featured 200 teams from the New York tri-state area, Brazil, China, Ecuador, Turkey, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. Winners at this level advance to the global competition. Continue reading FIRST Robotics Competition 2016: NYC Regional
Welcome to Our Website!
We are Kathy May and Silas, a couple of normal folk temporarily located in Boston. We hand-coded our individual personal websites since our college years, but decided to combine them as www.kathymayandsilas.com in 2008. In 2016, our website underwent a major overhaul to what you see today! In addition to amateur web design, we also share a number of other hobbies and interests, including but not limited to photography, electronics, arts and crafts, exploring, volunteerism, healthcare, and experiencing new things in general! Most of all, we enjoy doing these things together!
