We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter

There is no reason to care one bit about this supposedly revived version of Heathkit until they produce actual product. The customer survey came out in spring of 2013, and since then there’s been nothing but hot air.
I could care less about Heathkit, after all the ducking and dodging I’m not sure why anyone would. I also agree that Ham radio is dying. It was shocking how many ham enthusiast got bad attitudes just because you pointed it out, to someone else! What happened to civil debates, it’s like people never heard of constructive criticism! I’m pretty sure more 20-30 year olds know of Adafruit, then Heathkit anyways. Keep up the good work!
