The Arduino compatible kit for an article program is going well. We have a bunch of great articles which will be posted at about one article a week. Maybe we should up that a bit. The authors are anxious to see their articles published. Thank you for the great submissions.
We should send out a bunch of kits tomorrow. I sent each author a brief email letting you know that the items should ship. If you did not receive an email from me then please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org right away. We have had a flood of emails over the last few weeks and could have missed something. Every article submission I have seen earned a reward. Again, if you did not hear from me by Email, I need to know right away.
There are still some Arduino Compatible Bare Bones kits available and we have more of the LED kits as well. If you have an electronics hobby related article waiting in your mind, better get it submitted soon.
We pay for the giveaway items primarily with revenue from the advertisements on the site. It may be a short time before enough accumulates and there are some kits left but the next giveaway item needs to be decided soon. We try to keep the item cost under $20/each and the shipping under $5/each. Any suggestions?
I really like the Modern Device Company Arduino Compatible kits so I may buy another round. Someone made a good sugestion for the AVR Butterfly evaluation boards. Let me know what you think in the comments.
