My husband John has been working in Xian and Shenzhen, China, this month, returning home at last next Wednesday. I have written before about John and his blinky lights – model railroad signal indicators – and open source boards. While in Shenzhen, he went shopping several times in the technical parts district, including a visit to the company that makes his boards.
A friend said that John had so many LEDs flashing in his room that at night it was easy to see which was John’s window at the Hasee Paradise Hotel near the Huawei campus. John’s new geek ware was heavy: he had to pay for 10 kilos extra weight flying back from Shenzhen to Xian.
