Arduino in Berlin - hello from new user

Just wanted to post a little note to say hello as I have just joined the forums. My name is Jason Ditmars and I'm an American electronic artist living in Berlin, Germany. I've been using and teaching microcontrollers for about 15 years now, from an old BASIC52, to the HC11, to the PIC, some Stamp'ing in between, and now I'm starting to move to Arduino! Congratulations on this wonderful project. 8-) Today I teach the first of 3 Arduino workshops at the Kunsthochschule (High Art School) Berlin, also known as the KHB. If there is decent interest, we will do a full semester class in the Spring. Wish me luck!
