    i read his blog posts occasionally, usually have mixed feelings
    Roo Williams
    @roowilliams
    i actually haven't checked the blog for a while
    but i guess with any sort of cultural preditions
    it's all subjective
    Sandeep Mistry
    @sandeepmistry
    agreed, it feels like he's getting sponsored to write a few posts as well
    we ordered the Kontakt cloud beacons, but were disappointed the f/w wasn't fully fleshed out
    on his post he gave the impression it was working as advertised
    Roo Williams
    @roowilliams
    he always recommended kontakt
    i think they're using kontakt on their own projects too
    Sandeep Mistry
    @sandeepmistry
    their regular BLE beacons are pretty good, they even have a PDF of the GATT spec

    @roowilliams
    that doesn't mean much to me at this point :) hopefully after i've digested that book!
    Sandeep Mistry
    @sandeepmistry
    you'll be a pro in no time!
    Roo Williams
    @roowilliams
    fingers crossed..
    i did a product design course
    not computer science
    there are a few fundamentals i still miss that make me get confused learning this stuff :)
    Sandeep Mistry
    @sandeepmistry
    you'll be fine, one of the prof's at ITP in NYU has been teaching BLE to students for their projects
    they seem to be picking it up quickly
    Roo Williams
    @roowilliams
    amazing
    Sandeep Mistry
    @sandeepmistry
    even though they don't have a computer science background
    Roo Williams
    @roowilliams
    yeh
    i do think there's going to be lots of opportunity in it
    Roo Williams
    @roowilliams
    all the ble peripherals people are using these days
    nice!!
    i'd be all over that
    if i was in NY already.. and a student
    hehe
    Sandeep Mistry
    @sandeepmistry
    haha, ya
    i went their last year for a BLE "doc-a-thon" tom igoe organized
    it was pretty good, it's all on github
    Roo Williams
    @roowilliams
    thanks sandeep! lots to do
    bookmarking all these physical computing guys too
    Sandeep Mistry
    @sandeepmistry
    good read, short and sweet
    let me know once you are settled in NY, I'll intro you to Tom
    Roo Williams
    @roowilliams
    cheers, that'd be great
    Sandeep Mistry
    @sandeepmistry
    you'll see lots of cool projects there, similar to the ones in your portfolio
    Roo Williams
    @roowilliams
    his site looks familiar actually, i think i used it when i was working with the arduino yun a while back
    Sandeep Mistry
    @sandeepmistry
    nice, he's also one of the co-founders of Arduino :)
    Roo Williams
    @roowilliams
    have you tried putting nodejs on android yet?
    apparently it's possible
    Sandeep Mistry
    @sandeepmistry
    not personally, someone emailed me and said they got noble running on it ~6 months ago
    Roo Williams
    @roowilliams
    nice!
    right, i'd better try and get some work done
