[Noisebridge-discuss] Arduino Buying Tips?

I encourage newcomers, especially those new to electronics and 
breadboarding, to use the Duemilanove, since most tutorials and examples 
you encounter will use this, reducing translation hurdles.

Disclosure: I sell Duemilanoves, so might be considered biased, but the 
reason I sell them is for this very reason.

Duemilanoves are $30 each which includes tax. Pickup at my workshop in 
Berkeley or we arrange to meet either where I teach (SFSU, CCA 
(Oakland), Crucible, and AiCA), or elsewhere in SF or East Bay.
