Please pass along my sincere thanks to Ms. Fried for her excellent keynote at the Open Hardware Summit, ironically watched on my closed as a tick’s butt Tivo. 8-)

For those of us with limited engineering talents, putting together the kits on adafruit and other places is about as close to participating as we can get but for me it’s very therapeutic – sort of like knitting. I’ve already done a couple of MintyBoosts, MiniPOV, TV-B-Gone and the MonoChron clock
kit.

I usually give them away which is my contribution to the open hardware community.

Keep up the good work.

  1. Sympatico about the “give them away” part. Roughly half of my projects are perhaps similarly therapeutic, done for the learning experience and “being in the zone” during construction. After a project is built and tested to work, I frequently lose interest in it unless it has a high utility/amusement factor. On the other hand, when it’s a keeper, it’s a constant-carry. If I need my TV-B-Gone and Mintyboost, I need ‘em bad.
