"When Jonathan Oxer turns up at Australia's national Linux
conference, you can be sure that he'll have an interesting idea,
either to talk about or else to demonstrate.
"Last year, the former president of Linux Australia and fellow
geek Jared "Flame" Herbohn presented a paper on geeking up one's
car. In 2010, he has a new idea.
"Oxer, who looks a bit different these days after shedding his
locks for a good cause, will be conducting a mini-conference, a
one-day workshop, on the Arduino .
"He describes it as a cheap, tiny computer system that was
originally designed as a teaching tool and building block for
people who want to add some intelligence to objects such as kinetic
sculptures and other gadgets"
