Hi folks,

Thanks for coming last night - that definitely was a record turnout! This community keeps on growing and hardware is sort of becoming a big deal. I guess many of you have read about the big presence of hardware this year at SXSW, and this is just the beginning.

Just following up from last night:

- Thanks to MakeSimply for sponsoring the session. If you do have a hardware startup, then please show them some gratitude and please fill up a survey (3 minutes!) so they can learn more about your needs:­

- Sign up (or get on the wiating list) for our awesome "Make your own PCB - Arduino clone" class at http://makeyourownpcb...­.

- We heard how GrabCAD went from "$25 for your design in 24 hours" to a 40 person company that has raised $16M to date. Pretty amazing story.

- TakkTile showed us their cheap and easy to use force sensors. There is now a discount in TakkTile store for the attendees of the event that will give $100 off on the Starter Kit, or $75 off on the cast TakkStrip -- code is NYCHW, and it expires 2011-03-29 23:59.

- Today public voting for the NYC Next Top Maker competition closes - so get those votes out!! The last 2 meetups we've had several teams present, and you can vote for them here:

Thanks again for coming out and see you next month!

The GrabCAD story was terrific and very inspiring. TakkTile too seems to have a promising future.
