I'm the Oakland, CA Chapter Leader and visiting NY City this weekend so I asked @nickweinberg if I could visit littleBits HQ today. Nick & Co were having a #HackPack session and I brought my swag from the Twilio conference (a HackPack complete with a rainbow matrix of LEDs and an arduinoBit). I had read Ayah's post
about standing with Ahmed, the Muslim boy who was arrested in Irving, TX when he brought a homemade clock into school. I Tweeted her blog post, re-tweeted Obama
, and shared a link to Why You Should Build a Clock for Social Good this Week on Hackaday
Actions speaks louder than social media. During the #HackPack session I re-programmed my arduinoBit to read #IStandWithAhmed. After leaving littleBits HQ I was asked by people at the Picasso exhibition that's at MOMA about my great backpack. I took it out and showed people and had a few conversations about Ahmed and injustice.
