Last Thursday was Take Your Kid to Work Day, and the mini SparkFunions came out in tiny droves to hang out for the day. We thought we'd poll them to see what they had to say about their parents' jobs, SparkFun and their goals for the future. Turns out, mostly animal sounds, but also some special answers:

Nathan gets sidetracked in the lightbulb aisle of the hardware store, and ends up with a teardown of different bulbs and a comprehensive analysis of manufacturing costs, which just goes to show you really can't take the engineer out of the CEO.

I've been gradually accumulating old SWITCH60 bulbs. Not sure I want cheaper bulbs, rather LEDs that are genuine low-power replacements for incandescents.

This may seem like a simple strip of lowly crimp pins, but to us, it's so much more. When these pins were built 18 hours ago, they rolled into our catalog as SparkFun's in-house widget #5,000,000. Every time we hit a milestone like this, the first thing we do is high-five each other, but the second thing we do is thank you all so much for being the reason we've gotten this far. We literally could not have done it without you, and we will consider ourselves wildly fortunate to start another round of high fives and thank yous when widget #10,000,000 comes off our production line. Thank you all!
