"Arduino was invented by Massimo Banzi, a self-taught electronics guru who has been fascinated by electronics since childhood. Mr. Banzi had what I think of as a dream childhood: endless hours spent dissecting, studying, re-assembling things in creative ways, and testing to destruction. Mr. Banzi designed Arduino to be friendly and flexible to creative people who want to build things, rather than a rigid, overly-technical platform requiring engineering expertise.

"The microprocessor revolution has removed a lot of barriers for newcomers, and considerably speeded up the pace of iteration. In the olden days building electronic devices means connecting wires and components, and even small changes were time-consuming hardware changes. Now a lot of electronics functions have moved to software, and changes are done in code."
