Arduino enthusiasts: ATMEL mini video series on the history of the AVR
ATMEL has released a few YouTube videos on the history of the AVR RISC (reduced instruction set) micro-controllers - the chips that these days power a huge number of devices including the increasingly popular Arduino.
I work on projects related to technology and taxonomy at the Natural History Museum, and as an advisor for the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature. My interests are in entomology (stick insects, cockroaches and insect acoustics) and how technology can change the way research is done in biology and museums. Big fan of open access, open data and open hardware.
