Hey everyone! As we head into JSConf US 2014, wanted to let you know the Omni Amelia Island is currently completely full. We have contracted with a rental group to provide 1, 2, and 3 bedroom condos near the venue. Only downside,  you will have to call (like with a telephone) 1 (800) 874-8679 Other option is to use this community to find a roommate! Please post either side of a roommate situation (offering or needing)!

AWESOME!!
 
I'm covering RobotsConf for Make Magazine - our first article contains a Q&A with RobotsConf curator Chris Williams. I'm very excited to meet the attendees, speakers, and workshop guides in just a few days - see you all soon!
Chris and Laura Williams have an audacious plan to transform 150 coders into makers at RobotsConf, a sold-out new conference Dec. 6-7 on Amelia Island near Jacksonville, FL. This 48 hour, hands-on,...

The primary purpose of the Node.js Advisory Board is to advise Joyent and the Node.js project core committers team leadership on matters related to supporting the long-term governance, structure, and roadmap of the Node.js open source project. The following main areas are included in this charter:

Provide a forum for individuals, users, and companies to discuss the issues under the scope listed below.
Provide guidance and input to leadership, and where possible, present a consistent and consolidated opinion from the broader Node.js community.

This meeting will be timeboxed to 30 minutes and will provide an overview of the previous meeting minutes and open the floor to public discussion, as moderated by Chris Williams (@voodootikigod). Questions, concerns will need to be posted via text using the Hangout App OR as comments to this notification.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Chris Williams. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Another week of travel. This should be the last before #jsconf. Unsure which part of that statement is most exciting, could be all of it equally.

awesome pinout work done by none other than the awesome +Jonathan Beri 
 
While hacking on my +Spark Core, I wanted a good pinout diagram. Inspired by the work of +Alberto Piganti (see http://goo.gl/qvIUsz,) I started to hack on one for the core. Feedback welcome and if you want to pitch in, let me know.

This was AWESOME both to watch being built AND the final demonstration. Great job Team Beaver.
 
Had an incredible time hacking for the last two days with +Jay Beavers , +Donald Ness & +Sylvia T at Robots Conf. Here's some nitty gritty pics of the internals. +Parrot AR.Drone 2.0  Controlled by +Leap Motion , with a claw triggered by the Spark wifi module to pick things up and drop them. WOot!

Story
Tagline
Maker of Improbable Things
Introduction

I am Chris Williams, the maker of improbable things and known widely as Voodoo Tiki God. If you do anything with JS, you may know of me, but more than likely know of something I have created directly or helped to create including the JS logo, node-serialport, and the voodoospark firmware. I do many things but rarely known for them, but if you look hard enough, you will most likely find me hiding behind the scenes. I write articles on an almost glacial pace at http://voodootikigod.com

Bragging rights
I build things that make lives better.
