I am interested in the workshop mainly because of the open-source
philosophy of the Arduino hardware and Processing software. They seem
to empower 'normal' people (if there is such a thing) to get on with
developing and prototyping ideas rapidly. The varied home-grown
projects I have seen online, are all stimulating get-on and have a go
projects. And although I know this is hardly new technology (Basic
stamps have been around for years), I really like the accessibility of
the Arduino philosophy.
Artists & Designers

Different levels with different expectations
Beginners look to the more advanced users for inspiration
Sharing and protecting
How to we get creative people to talk about their tools?
Is there a CC-like model for this?
Code Components project
It takes time and it’s not only code
Is there an Instructables-like standard for this?
Meeting new people
Is face to face the only way?
Manufacturing is easy
Creating a community around your product isn’t.
