count me in!  I am super excited about that stuff.

i am so jealous of the equipment that Sebastian brought to town when he 
visited, i hope he left it all behind.  I missed the flyover of dolores 
park (look on vimeo for Noisebridge Dolores) and Sebastian missed flying 
over thousands of people in the mayday march in oakland.

I have a three-axis magnetometer / accelerometer and ideas for a 
long-duration neutral buoyancy surveillance craft.

How much interest would there be for me to do a monthly UAV (Unmanned
Automated Vehicle) workshop at NB?

I've just finished the design for an ARM Cortex-M3 based UAV board
that leverages and ports the work done for ArduPilot.   Instead of
being an Ardu Pilot Mega, it's an "ARMPilotMega" board, that speaks
the same protocols (MAVlink, etc) and uses a port of the ArduPilot
firmware.

If enough people at NB have an interest in UAV's (air/land/sea) we can
do the workshop day, then maybe do meet-ups at the abandoned Alameda
naval base, where we can play with and test vehicles.
