Hello Adafruit!

I am the founder of the new hackerspace in central New Jersey called IXR – Institute of Exploratory Research (www.ixrnj.org).  I am excited to report that we are having our Grand Opening celebration this Sunday, 10/16 2-6pm.

One thing we’re doing as part of the party is a contest for the best “geek-chic” fashion item.  So I came to Adafruit to order a prize for the contest.

I just ordered your RGB backlight negative LCD – an item that generated lots of ooohs and ahhhs from our group when it was first announced.  I was also considering the “Midnight Hacker” or an Arduino Uno, but I needed to keep the budget low.

We at IXR all love Adafruit and our members have ordered several items. Hopefully soon we will have enough budget to take advantage of the hackerspace discount and order en-masse.

If there is anyone who might be interested in popping in for the party, it is open to the public, and there’s more details here:

Thank you Adafruit for being awesome!
