Sample text

I learned how to ship packages anywhere in the world and how to print postage labels at home. I learned how to pack merchandise carefully and where to get the best shipping supplies. I gained these capabilities by finding the right tools and services that provide them. I think of this toolset as a platform on which I operate. There are lots of choices for each of these things, so an aspiring Maker Pro has a lot of research to do. The great news is that you can build a platform of capabilities with free and cheap tools that are only getting better.

Constraints present you with constant challenge. Constraints force you to find clever ways to accomplish your goal. They make you invent new techniques, find shortcuts, evaluate trade-offs, and in my case, squeeze every bit of capability out of a tiny microcontroller. During my years of learning, I’ve figured out how to do pretty heavy stuff with an Arduino, like processing video signals, making action arcade games, and digital signal processing with audio. One day I noticed a spike in web traffic on my site from one particular location: the Department of Homeland Security.

And I was scheduled to fly to New York City the following week to attend Maker Faire. Would I be on the no-fly list? In the end, nothing came of it, and years later I’m still selling the Defusable Clock, sometimes to law enforcement agencies for bomb squad training! Obviously I’ve learned a lot about running a business: taxes, supporting customers, managing a supply chain, and all the other things you’d expect. More importantly, I’ve learned a lot about myself. I now know that I truly love technology for the joy of discovery that it brings.
