Vote for Arduino! Arduino has helped many people get in to electronics, it’s run by a great group and most of all – it’s completely open source hardware, they’re pioneers – it would be great to see OSHW in the Shanghai Expo (and on that note, check out the expo!)…

The Italian government is making a selection of national innovations to bring to Shanghai’s Expo this year. There have been many entries, among them ours, and now Wired Italy is conducting an online poll to decide which will be the chosen ones to be present at the Expo. Representing Arduino, Massimo submitted an entry in the name of Smartprojects, the company manufacturing Arduino USB and Arduino Mega, as well as a bunch of the official shields. The whole campaign is in Italian, and therefore it is pretty hard for the non-Italian speakers to even get to know this is happening. This is a call for you all to Vote for Arduino, if you are happy with the platform, if you enjoy learning and building with us, if you like it and if you like us, you can help us out getting more visibility in front of the world by visiting the following website and clicking on the five-starts rating system on top of the page. Please, go straight for the 5th star, we need all the help in the world to be one of the chosen ones. As a thank you, here you get a video of Massimo explaining in Italian why Arduino should be representing Italy at the Expo…
