Welcome to my little corner of Open Circuits.
I think I first stumbled across Open Circuits on 2006-03-01. I had been starting to set up a electronics-related wiki, but since this one was already here, why bother?
Feel free to leave a note on my talk page.
I created the WikiNode.
Electronic projects: (Should I move these to dedicated pages such as electronics workbench, etc.?)
What exactly do I need for "normal" electronics development? I have a pile of stuff, and I have a wishlist of more stuff ... I hope to document which things are important to have, which things are useful but not immediately necessary, and which things ended up just gathering dust.
data collection network
I'm building a "data collection network" that may end up with hundred of microcontroller sensor nodes, piping data into a PC. This may turn into a serious medical diagnosis tool.

Full-color LED lighting
I'm planning to build a silly little toy with 3 LEDs -- one for red, green, and blue -- to show how "additive colors" work (a "color wheel"). (I might just extend it to have a whole spectrum of visible and infrared LEDs, and a prism to show the little spikes in the spectrum that LEDs generate).

"PC Card" PCMCIA
I maintain the unofficial PC Card FAQ.
I'd like to move it to a wiki. What would be the best wiki to put it on? Open Circuits?

Whee! I'm a sysop at Open Circuits! The power -- it's rushing to my head! --DavidCary 15:20, 23 February 2007 (PST)
