The whole world of arduino and its clones is starting to  dig into my time for playing with CHDK.   Too many cool projects - way too little time.  And to paraphrase a columist from Byte magazine,  my second favorite programming language is solder.

When you can buy an 8 pin chip for $4 or a PCB for $20 and do stuff in a few hours that it used to cost hobbyist hundreds of dollars and months of "blow&go" eprom work the hobby world has changed!

You can buy the whole Arduino ProMini clone board for not much more than $4 ... OK it has a slightly lower spec than the Apple 1, but then again the Apple 1 is a little more expensive  :P, and just a tad larger.

There is an article and discussion at the Huffington Post Titled: Technical Literacy Can everyone Learn to Code?

I posted the following under foodieatheart.

Maybe other members may want to add a comment to the discussion.

In an era where there are no employment guarantees, possessing new skills may keep the wolf from the door and develop an income by lateral thinking.   

Desktop computers were invented by hobbyists using industrial microprocessor components. People do not have to re-invent the wheel, there are still plenty of people programming inexpensive commercially built educational micro-controllers using free open source code.

Open-source software:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open-source_software

The Raspberry Pi is a small educational computer ($35) built from mobile phone technology to teach British children computing skills. One million units sold in one year.

Conventional photography can be expensive. People have hack cheap point and shoot Canon cameras and adapted them for use in applications that were the domain of commercial and military applications.

A small suggestion if you can edit your posting?  A link to the wiki page might have been a better place to point new people to - rather than the forum?

A couple of other recent things of interest for CHDK development :

http://www.canonrumors.com/2013/05/will-third-party-firmware-void-your-canon-warranty/
http://www.diyphotography.net/dear-canonnikonpanasonic-can-i-use-custom-firmware-my-camera

The link titles pretty much introduce themselves.

This one is interesting too although only slightly related to CHDK :

@msl :  thank for the links.  It is certainly an interesting build and was probably a lot of fun to work on.

However, one does have to wonder if it would not have been better (and maybe cheaper) to simply buy a second used camera and avoid the complexity of the pendulum mechanism?  A little more post processing to get the resulting image files renamed and sorted into sequence is the only disadvantage I can see.
