I’ve just received an email from a french guy that was baffled by the fact that both companies GHI & Phidgets were allowing me to talk of each other on their respective forum and that both of them also shared informations and tips to help me make Domino and Phidget boards working together…
I can say here that I was proud to tell him that even commercial companies can think at “individuals” and can have a hobbyist mind sometimes, thus helping such individuals to successfully manage their projects.
I know that there’s still some commercial interest behind all this, but to me this is “the rule” : you can’t receive without sending. Here, my “sending” consist in sharing the result of this collaboration.
For any skeptics, I say that I have not received anything from the two companies except some experience points on this forum. Nobody can say that I was bribed.
So what ? Well, I just wanted to share what I think is good news : there are still some open-minded people here, despite possible suspicions of business interests.
