Please share a little about who you are and your interest in this meetup; do you do work related to vehicles or transportation now?

The maximum number of Linux boxen I've had in my car is 7. I'm down to zero now, but want to fix that. I've played with Tiger Line Data to display a moving map back before there were web services giving you that info. I had a 7" VGA LCD touch screen Linux box RAM-mounted to my dashboard, with an Ethernet cable running to the trunk where I had my "fast" computer. Currently, I'm working on a small touch screen UI to replace the radio in my car with a glorified audio mixer. The goal is to have some moderate car status info (fuel consumption, etc) and intuitive controls on the steering wheel. I'm also going to try to set up good microphone inputs for telephony. I'm more of a gadget person than a car person. I haven't contributed as much to open source as I'd like to, but in general I'm happy for everything I do to be available. I just need to get it clean and ready for that.


I'm a computer scientist but I play with hardware on the side for fun.
