I think you've got enough news feeds as it is
SparkFun was always the bigger, massive company that had more resources, people, equipment, space and more – they made a lot of electronics accessible to people and were (and are) one of the leading open-source hardware companies.
Thanks pt, I needed a pat on the back this morning. Someday folks will realize Adafruit surpassed SparkFun in size, resources, and revenue years ago and your rebel, underdog persona might be a little harder to maintain.
We’ll be watching SPARK X to see if ultimately this is what SparkFun becomes by competing with itself, or if this was this a distraction and a way to keep some cooks out of the kitchen.
Have fun with that. I’m going to go build something.
