Why are you interested in Arduino?

I'm interested the wholistic process of development, these days being able to make a complete project easier than before, starting from pcb design all the way to supply chain manufacturing. Arduino fits in that ecosystem where people can easily write control codes at a high level to fit their applications without required intimate knowledge of firmware details, which in turn grows a community of cross disciplined makers that can produce incredible things

Do you consider yourself a Serial Do-it-Yourselfer?

Yes, I've designed several gadgets before and i like to have multi-discipline knowledge. Coming from a chip analog design background I've designed plugg.ee all the way bottoms up, I created the set of PCB's (including wifi radio), integrated the firmware and I'm also writing an iphone app. Sometimes I feel that I get caught into doing everything myself (which spreads me thin). I always like to meet people with similar understanding of how we can things in the open world we have today

Introduction

I'm the founder/designer of plugg.ee (website still under construction), a compact internet connected power plug. It's more than that, it's an open source platform (partnered with spark devices) that can be easily integrated into other platforms
