Here is the third installment of our series of Make: Shorts covering “Maker Pioneers,” inventors, entrepreneurs, makers who are dreaming up clever solutions to today’s energy and environmental problems. In this video, we visit somebody MAKE readers are likely already familiar with, Limor Fried, aka Ladyada, from Adafruit Industries. Limor talks about Adafruit’s kit business and the development of the Tweet-a-Watt, a modification to the Kill-a-Watt home energy monitor, which twitters data about your energy usage.
