Q&A: Open Source Electronics Pioneer Limor Fried on the DIY Revolution @ WIRED

Limor Fried is a maker’s maker. Sure, she’s got prime geek credentials: She earned an electrical engineering degree from MIT, invented several delightfully nerdy things to do with Altoid tins, and reverse-engineered the legendary Roland TB-303 synthesizer. Now she runs Adafruit Industries, a New York City company that makes open source electronics kits and components for the growing tide of DIYers who are inventing the future…

This is from the print article in this month’s WIRED! We featured it here on MAKE last week *AND* here’s the video that also appears on the iPad edition.

    nice to see I don’t need to buy an iThing to see the videos that were not included in my print version of a magazine. ;)

      You may not like the iThing, but I sure do love mine… I’ve got every issue of Make and Craft magazines loaded plus a few dozen movies and about 30 or so tech books including the Make: Electronics book… being able to carry around my library is totally worth the price of admission.

        Where does it say in the article that s/he does not like the iThing? I don’t see anything wrong with it but the price and Apples tight grip on it.

        I must agree with the digital note though, I sure do love having them on my kindle and other mobile formats.
