Hi there,

We've released three books I hope everyone will check out: Cooking for
Geeks, Gamestorming, and Being Geek. We're looking for Slashdot, Amazon,
and oreilly.com reviews for each one. Let me know if you're interested.

Starting August 31, O'Reilly is offering a free online course Processing
and Arduino in Tandem in partnership with creativeLIVE. Space is
limited, so register now.
