Greeting Adafruit blog readers! My name is Nick Normal and I’ll be bringing you more of the news & links you love to read here. First a quick bit about myself: I’m a lifelong geek, I love the convergence of art & technology, I helped produce Dorkbot NYC for 3+ years and have co-organized the World Maker Faire in Queens, NYC, for the past 6 years. I’m a fan of makers of all stripes and skillsets, from young adults just getting started making to experienced puppet crafters to electronics gurus.
In my spare time I enjoy bicycling and exploring the five boroughs of NYC, home canning and jarring seasonal veggies, and decorating my apartment with the art of over 100 artists & makers (it’s like a giant walk-in gallery installation!). For my own projects I deploy everything from laser-cut cardboard to circuit-bent keyboards, whatever the job calls for.
Feel free to ping me on Twitter with your thoughts, and I look forward to engaging the Adafruit audience more here on the blog and beyond!
