“I was writing web pages, constantly moving this one pixel to the left, while having that same half-hearted argument about using ems instead. But JSConf was in a week, and I couldn’t wait.
At JSConf I attended the Nodebots event, thinking ‘maybe I'll get an LED to light up. That'd be cool.’ It took me SIX hours, but I did get an RGB LED changing colors to three potentiometers. A few hours after that, I had a web server and could change the color from the browser.
One year later, I showed up to that same conference, but this time in a dress covered in RGB LEDs, controlled by a board that I could program in JavasScript.”
