I was a little overwhelmed by the mega welcome thread, so I thought I would do what is done in other parts and do my own intro topic.
I'm a software professional who's spent his last few years focused on open source software infrastructure . I'm now working on a global enterprise platform.
More importantly, I'm a parent of 3. My oldest just turned eight and I'm excited for each to experience technology, particularly technologies that are part of the commons.
A friend gave me the littleBits Arduino Coding Kit. I'm thrilled by the physical design and package. I'm excited to get started.
