I like to draw, but don’t get to do it enough. I love to daydream, and probably do too much of that. I love to watch people, get lost in museums, and explore the world with my family. And I am in need of a good 5-day hiking trip somewhere in WY.

    feedback@sparkfun.com – we read all emails and love the suggestions! Thanks!

    I’d also love to take this class here in CO, so I’m seconding Member #98994’s request! :D

  • News - Maker Faire San Mateo 201… | about 2 years ago

    We will be coming out to MFNY, but we just don’t know what presence we will be able to swing. At a bare minimum, we’ll send some of our crew out to give out some goodies, enjoy the faire and meet new Makers.

    Word around the office is that they could be available by the end of this year. This projected ETA is subject to change, of course, but for those of you who are anxiously awaiting the Weather Meter’s return, watch for any updates to the product throughout December.

    Not currently. We’ve tossed around the idea of a customer newsletter to only those who opt in, but we haven’t found a good way to offer different content than what the blog currently offers. And we don’t want to just regurgitate the same content in different media. We did a blog announcement and a few followup posts on the Microcontroller Contest with Instructables back when it was happening. The blog really is the best way to keep up on events. But thanks for the suggestion. It’s good to know there’s interest for this type of thing.

    Once we get it back in stock, we will be able to re-shoot the product on black.

    customer207, you made my day!!

    Hack A Day has definitely thrown us some traffic spikes in the past. It’s really encouraging to see how closely knit the community is, yet how quickly it is growing. Events like Maker Faires, local groups like hackerspaces, and awesome content-packed community sites like Hack A Day have really exposed a lot of people to the addiction of invention… as well as the compelling need to void warranties! We are truly grateful to be associated with such awesome creative folks!!

    We didn’t run the ads all the time. We more or less had to rotate the ads monthly in different publications, so unless you are an avid subscriber to those publications, you could have missed our ads. But they did still reach a fair amount of people. We have a lot more people subscribed to our blog now, so this is probably one of the best channels to feature you awesome inventors out there.
    Thanks for the compliments on the site! I’m sure IT, Marcomm, and RobertC are all grinning right now. :)

    We love Instructables and have worked with them in the past on a contest or two. The Microcontroller Contest was a lot of fun. We’d love to do another contest in the future too. Thanks for the suggestion.
