    I am really hoping for some HAM AX25 awesomeness from her.

    You might want to keep an eye on the official Raspberry Pi Blog. They stated a couple of weeks ago that RPi Zero units were going back into production in a couple of weeks with a "new feature that users have been asking for." Who knows what that means, but I really want to get one of these and build a Zero cluster!

    Damn good to finally see SOMEONE in the maker movement finally helping to bridge the gap between the "maker movement" & amateur radio.

    She seems quite competant. Makes me feel right at home. No headphones, no gigantic mic on a boom, no simulated "broadcast studio" environment, no phoniness. Wow, how refreshing.

    She's quite competent, fairly humble, refreshingly unpretentious, & does tend to bring a new spin on already developed platforms & current product ideas. While I've not seen anything "Truly" breakthrough & mind-blowing from her company yet (at the current time), everything they produce that I've bought so far over the past few years has been well worth my dollars & time to mess around with. A company run by a passionate techno-nerd, & it shows :D

    I'm really hoping that the lame outdated & unwarranted "Good ole boy" entitlement club / mentality I've seen in amateur radio doesn't turn them off in developing products for us.............

    that IS good news! I follow their blog, but missed it because it was sort of buried inside a Game Controller. No matter. I'm glad to see it's going to be back in production!

    I met her at a Maker Fair.... and she's all of the above. She's the real-deal. She's also VERY intelligent.
