Just saw this:

Seems I'll have to make another video to present the project in a more succinct way though... :|

Nice video - but I can't find the most importend project based on AVR in it :P

Yesterday the new German Retro magazine was published. In the news area you can find some news (page 8) about the UCC2014...

For some reason I want to make stickers for the contest, and I want to see some uzers in Minneapolis. I see stickers from time to time for podcasts and different things, not sure how effective they are for special interests. Is this idea hair brained and wasteful when there are better ways to do it?

Alec do you happen to have the larger development version of the UCC2014 logo? Print place didn't like my ~400x400 version and I'd like to get rid of any jpeg artifacts, thanks

Hi Lee, stickers or cards like those I made for maker faire new york are great promo items! You'll need at least 300 DPI for those to look good though. Not sure I have a better resolution file for the ucc2014 logo. I'll check. Otherwise I'll see if I can hack one in the next few days.

I'll can mail you several when they are done if you like. The order is for 200 high gloss 4x4 inch stickers(which I didn't know requires image resolution of 1200x1200 @ 300dpi)
Right now the only good place I have planned is for my brother plastering some around the University of Minnesota computer science department, then I will have to figure out where else the target audience hangs out :? So the plan is to spread them out to people who have a plan, if anyone wants 1 or 2 for their car or 30 or 40 for whatever else just let me know in PM where you want them snail mailed. I probably wont have the stickers for 10 days depending on how fast I can get a higher resolution version of the UCC2014 logo or an alternate image @1200x1200.

Do they require some special file format with vectorized fonts? Like Adobe illustrator? I'll provide a lossless format in any case. I'll do my best to send you something by Friday.
