Unimportant stats about the (currently five) HaD.io sponsors.
@Atmel Corporation, @Freescale Semiconductor, @Mouser Electronics, @Microchip Technology, @Texas Instruments, I want to be clear about something: I am genuinely thrilled that you folks all have accounts on this site. I'm also super impressed that you're willing to fork over a [probably large] amount of money to sponsor the Hackaday Prize 2015. Seriously, it's really awesome that you guys are putting yourselves out there like that. You're supporting a fun and growing community. Finally, I think it's great that you are all curating lists that highlight cool community projects that use your projects in innovative ways.
But I want to see YOUR projects! Yup, I'm talking to you, Ms. Texas Instruments Product Development Engineer Who Builds Tons Of Cool MSP430 Stuff In Your Spare Time. And you, Mr. Mouser Inventory Guy Who Created An Awesome Robot Using Decommissioned Packaging Machine Parts. Show us what you're working on, corporate marcomm protocols be damned!
We're already off to a blistering start!
