Q & A from the live chat:
Woodnerd: Here's a question for you guys: I work in my dayjob with lots of SoC development boards such as Beagleboard, Minnowboard, RaspberryPi, Arduino, etc. etc., primarily with Embedded Linux, but I'm curious what woodworkers would be interested in learning about this stuff, as I use woodworking as an escape from it?
Joshua Luther: How do you respond to family and friends who approach you to make them something that's not up your alley? I've had to say no a couple of times because it didn't make sense either time wise or financially.
