Tell us a little about yourself
Hi everyone. My professional background has nothing to do with tech, per se, though I usually end up being the token IT guy wherever I work. I am currently the Director of Operations at a service company (hvac, indoor air quality, energy, etc...) and my background is in management. My true passion has always been tech, though. Anything from building high end PCs to programming to blowing up Arduinos.

What country do you live in?
United States

What is your current experience? (Years working on computers, in the business, certifications etc..)
Like I've said above, I've spent years (decades now, I'm getting old) hacking around as a hobby and I think I want to get a little more serious with it. There are a lot of gaps in my knowledge, as is the case with most hobbyists, and I hope to fill them in.

Are you self looking to start a computer business, already have one, working for someone else or something else?
I'm dabbling with the idea of starting a company.

Anything else you would like to share? hobbies etc..
Great to be here. I discovered this site about two weeks ago and I am blown away by what I've learned from everyone already.

Thanks Good Stones!

Nothing too spectacular to share. My daughter and I just love playing around with the Arduino/Netduino; interfacing them with Twitter, messing around with sensors, etc... I've been helping her learn the Processing language as well as a little Python and Linux (Arch).

We're big fans of sites like makezine, instrucables, and lifehacker and we'll often find some fun projects to whip up.

We're trying to get our hands on the Raspberry Pi next, but they're few and far between.
