What robotics & maker related topics do you enjoy, and what would you like to make or build?

Will probably use the Lego Mindstorm stuff. I've done a lot of work in embedded systems through the years so I'm also interested in custom hardware.

Would you like to lead discussions? What topics would you like to discuss?

I'm new to robotics, but an experienced embedded developer. Could lead discussions on some topics if there is interest. Maybe, something on writing a boot loader.

Please suggest a few robotics & maker topics that you'd like to learn about (e.g., soldering, Arduinos, mobile robots, making crafts, etc.)

For the short term, I'm mostly concerned with getting info on people's experience with the existing products (ex. Mindstorm & competitors). A good topic would be what "web resources" have been most useful in your current projects.

What other interests & hobbies do you have?

I'm interested in doing educational programs as well. My hobbies are mountain biking, running and I used to water ski quite a bit.
