  1. That’s awesome!

    a.) hope you are stocked up on mintyboost parts!
    b.) A million dollars? Time to order up another pick and place!

    Congratulations.

  2. thx!

    “on track” to a million… please buy a kit ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Very Very cool. The WSJ does some serious work when it comes to writing articles. I was featured in one summer of 2008 (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB121088619095596515.html, Me and my twin are in the “interactive”) They called me about 5 times interviewing me and asking questions and gathering details about what I did, all for a little paragraph. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It was very impressive though, especially when they flew someone down to TN to take pictures of us.

    Congrats on the article,

    …and a million dollar target!? Impressive to say the least! I will certainly buy a kit to help you reach that goal.. whenever I get money… boo hoo college student. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Very cool. Even Mosfet got some screen time. On track to a million? When are we going to see Limor and Phillip cruising Manhattan in the Adafruit Ferrari? ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. “Electronics isn’t like a geeky loser thing! It’s a little geeky. Maybe you don’t have many friends…”

    Sorry, that popped out at me and made me laugh!

    Awesome to see you (and others, like Bre) on such a high profile news site.

  6. I see you’ve done big things :).. Haven’t seen you since the “lemon” days outside Au Bon Pain. CHEERS! to your many more years of success. We’ll keep the Boston Voice Bridge open for ya ๐Ÿ™‚
