  • Thank you for all the great work you guys do. It makes a huge difference!

  • I seem to find that there’s a correlation between the types of NFPP’s and my desire to spend moola. When there’s a cool demo, neet widget, etc, I tend to shop that weekend and scurry off to another project the moment the goods arrive, leaving the prior project unfinished of course. I suspect I’m not unique.

  • Casey pulled the rocket out of his pocket.

  • ‘Merica, let’s build stuff!

  • I’m a MSFT employee, and it’s truly awesome to be part of what we’re setting out to do. The tone is about people and perfect products. It’s about helping people do amazing things, and inspiring the next set of generations to come. Many of my colleagues put in well over 400 hrs/yr volunteering in the maker space communities - this is something we’re very passionate about. I’m stoked about what’s coming down the MSFT pipe, but especially so for makers and doers. At MSFT, we recently implemented a Hackathon - a week/year dedicated to making, where we’re paid and encouraged to create and do something awesome. Last year I built a robot that would follow someone around as they walk, leveraging SparkFun products and the Surface Pro 3. This year, while I don’t know exactly what I’ll be creating - it’ll incorporate a Surface, RPi w/ Win10, Azure and Cortana.

  • I personally love my Surface Pro 3 for all my electronics work. I can do everything I need, even when on the go.

  • Relative statement. +1 for Sarah. Shawn and Sarah are kind of like Grant, Carie and Tory from the myth busters, as “the bearded one” is to Jamie and Adam.

  • This time around, we’re going back to our classic prize - $100 in SparkFun credit for use on whatever your heart desires. May the best caption win!

  • Congratz to the winners! I hope vNext of this competition is not during the FIRST FRC robotics season, and I’ll put in a submission.

  • Short video, with two posts on how you can make money on the internet = bummer to NFPP on lunch break.
