What kind of thing have you made, are currently making, or want to make? (Keep it general)

Extensive background in H/W and S/W of embedded uP applications. Many applications over the years: weapons and flight test, auto racing,aerospace. Currently knocking out way cool widgets for application in current career - broadcast engineering. Just little machines to fill the voids I come across. Keeping it fun.....

What kinds of things would you like to learn about, either from presenters, or from your fellow Makers?

Development tools, current languages. Assume I know know nothing, because there so many aspects to making things that I'm sure I know nothing about the vast majority of them.

What are your favorite tools and services? Software, hardware, fabrication, whatever you love.

Hands down its my awesome machine shop. Nothing puts a perfect finish a project like a killer packaging solution. I would convey to anyone making something, develop a relationship with a good machine shop to really kick a design into the stratosphere. I've often stood in silent amazement at a project and thought "Wow, I did THAT?" Awesome packaging sets the perfect stage to reveal the inner workings if a beautiful design.
