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

I love playing around with Arduinos and Phidgets - anything from interfacing a mobile app with an RFID reader via bluetooth, to setting up an entire interactive experience.

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

Sure, although I'm still a novice at electronics and understanding circuits and etc, I successfully redesigned and launched a museum exhibit at the Orlando Science Center - H2Now. It incorporates over 10 different touch-screen kiosks, each with their own RFID reader, along with a miniature interactive city, run on over a dozen relays, which allow users to turn lights on and off, move a train, open/close draw bridges, and etc. It was made with Adobe AIR, a WAMP stack, and a collection of various Phidget devices.

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

Owner of blog, and lead developer at IDEAS Orlando. Newbie at hacking devices, and electronics in general - although I know enough to be dangerous (in that, I've destroyed a few ICs and shorted out a few microprocessors in testing!)
