Hello my name is John and I am a first year electrical engineering student. I would like to thank you for the enjoyment and knowledge I have gotten from your tutorials, open source hardware, and “Ask an Engineer”. When I started high school I had no idea what I wanted to do for a living. I had always been a supporter of open source software and liked the idea of using electronics to interact with the physical world. In grade 9 or 10 I decided buy your arduino starter pack. From there I became fascinated by electronics. The knowledge that you freely share quickly brought me up to programing my own avrs. A few years and many adafruit kits later I am etching my own boards and have a small armada of xbee powered cardboard robots to roam the halls of my university residence. (and by small armada I mean 1 as I have cannibalized parts from the others for my rfid/keypad dorm room lock) So this is a very sincere thank you for the knowledge I have gotten from your tutorials, kits, and talks. I will try as best as I can to share the knowledge I get as freely as possible. Thanks again!

-John
