Blue Ribbons

I was pleased and flattered that the Stribe receceived TWO "Editor's Choice" blue ribbons this weekend at Maker Faire Austin 2008. Thanks guys! It's a wonderful feeling to be recognized for all the long nights of hard work.

I made some terrific new friends and got to talk "geek" non-stop for 2 days!

And of course it's always a distinct pleasure watching people discover the Stribe!

Special thanks go to stretta for his demo app, and to Vlad Spears for Scalar.

Goin to the Faire

Heading to Austin tomorrow for the 2008 Maker Faire.

I'm bringing the Stribe along with a new firmware rev from Kid Sputnik to show off, along with an updated version of a Max patch written by Stretta.

Last year I went to the Faire in Austin with the original Stribe prototype under my arm and just wandered around, showing it to a couple folks. Then a few months ago I had my first booth at the San Mateo Faire - which was incredible. I plan to bring a bit less stuff, and the booth won't be quite as "fancy" this time.

I'm psyched to meet up with Scott Driscoll from Curious Inventor (http://www.curiousinventor.com), David Fowler from ucHobby (http://www.uchobby.com), and several others for a weekend of gettin' our geek on, and BBQ.

Scott and I have designed a new product, called "Stribe1", which is a single-strip stribe module - one touchstrip and 2 columns of LEDs. Soon we'll be selling these on his curiousinventor.com site, along with a variety of touchstrips from SpectraSymbol. There will be an official announcement and lots of pics and demos soon. Can't wait to see what people make with 'em!

Got my cowboy hat on and I'm mostly packed... I'll try to post some pics as the weekend progresses.
