Arduino hits hipter tipping point: SXSW bingo


Just a few years after the first mention of Arduino at SXSW, it's now part of the festival's bingo. Trust me, in geek circles, this counts as a breakout moment.

and for those not familiar with South By Southwest (SXSW) - it's not just music/film festival...there is a tech "wing" with all kinds of gadgets and other techy stuff. It's a geeks paradise and I wish I was there....

While I am familiar with the concept of "Long Tail", I did not know he introduced it / conceptualized it - that's impressive! Long Tail @ wikipedia:

yes, I'm busy ;-) I'll be at SxSW talking about my next book, "Free", out in July. No UAVs this time...

It's a bit scary up there with the Twitter mob commenting on your every move. Fortunately, they didn't turn on us, but it's freaky to watch the feedback in real time. The revenge of the audience!
