Your stuff looks quite slick, and some people that want to sell slick
hardware fall into the trap believing that they need to make it closed
hardware to be successful, maybe because they didn't have enough open
source/hardware experience to know better or this is what they were
told by some mis-informed startup adviser. Did you fall into that trap
?

Sounds good. I try to be there, but 6pm is a bit early in the day;
hope you stay a while.
