Sparse's Story Illustrates the Potholes Faced By Hardware Start-Ups

braden87 IMHO It's not that hard. (103 comments)

Our hardware (also software heavy) start up was recently acquired for an exponent of our annual gross revenue. The company started ~18 months ago, and we went from idea to Indiegogo to shipping in 12. ALL MADE IN NORTH AMERICA (sure some components were sourced from Asia but design and assembly all in NA). I've done harder things in my life.

Ask Slashdot: Beginner To Intermediate Programming Projects?

braden87 Re:Pieces of impossible (172 comments)

This is an excellent response. OP please put great weight on what ddt says. As a professional I can't tell you how many times I've been programming w/rt subject matter I love and been amazed at how little effort seemingly impossible projects take to come together. I've also noticed when I'm not thrilled/interested/excited about a project I tend to view tasks as much more difficult than they end up being.

braden87 Talking (366 comments)

How is someone talking endlessly on their cell any different from the two people directly behind me chatting for hours? Let's just pass a law that everyone must not generate more than 20db for the entire flight (sarcasm).

CES 2014: A Bedbug Detector that Looks Interesting but has Detractors (Video)

braden87 Math fail... I thought we're all neckbeards here? (72 comments)

Ugh it hasn't been "several" weeks since CES closed. My company was there so I know it ended Jan 10. Let's do some grade 1 math: Jan 21 (when this post was written) - Jan 10 = 11. Several is definitely plural, so you'd need at least 14 days. 14 > 11.

1 year,8 days
