Thanks guys! Developing custom software forever, and then I met Bret years ago to get Windows Phone advice, but rich media just isn’t me.I’ve been coaching robotics for a few years now, and it’s a real challenge to go super inexpensive for the kids. I have the controllers now, and I really look forward to following you guys make!Again, thanks so much!

@Jamie Dixon: Hi Jamie, I agree with you 100%, we all do. The cast of The Maker Show is actually much larger than the 6 guys you met in this episode. Some of the makers you will see in future episodes include Stacey Mulcahy, Rachel Weil and Nathaniel Rose. We have a very diverse team in DX and we embrace diversity across the board. It just so happens that these are the 6 that could make it for the recording of episode 0. Stay tuned! 🙂

@Jamie Dixon: We hear ya! We have at least two gals on the show team, but they had stuff come up just before we recorded that introductory episode. Dang.

Love the show and the ideas. Any chance we can get a woman or a minority as part of the regular cast?
