Want to see someone featured in Meet an ODROIDian?

Unread postby robroy » Tue Aug 02, 2016 1:33 pm

Our Meet an ODROIDian column is one of the most popular features of ODROID Magazine. It gives us a chance to learn more about the people behind the projects. I have chosen some of the top forum and project contributors over the past 2.5 years to answer a few questions and share their stories and opinions with the ODROID community. Now it's your turn to either nominate someone whom you would like to see featured in the column, or volunteer to be interviewed. Either post a reply on this thread, or send me a PM and I will add the nominee to our upcoming interview list.

I actually sent him a couple PMs, both about the MAO feature and writing an article about LibreElec, but never get a response about either one. So there is still hope since he never actually said no.

@robroy: How do you imagine an article about LE. I'm with LibreElec on their slack channel and I can ask if someone wants to write an article or I can write one but I'm not sure if I can do a good job since I'm not a native english speaker.

I'll ping wrxtasy on slack.

But thats pretty Offtopic here....so if you want send me PM.

I declined the offer, I'm not that interesting.

Here is an old interview I did back when I was heavy into Android kernel development.

That page is no longer accessible. Maybe it's time to reconsider and let us judge wether you are boring or not.
The same goes for @crashoverride. For the level of conttributions he's made, he shouldn't be allowed to remain anonymous.
If you guys don't want to share pictures, that's fine, but at least a bio/background...

The link works, Tapatalk just mangles it. You have to click it from a browser.

It goes into a bit detail on my background. I appreciate the attempt of recognition.

How about hosting a contest for kids to do a project on their own using an ODROID, write an article for the magazine, and the winner gets $x of goodies from HK and a write-up in the Meet an ODROIDian?

It already works like this, if Rob prints your article you usually receive some nice goodies.

I had unexpected health issues and couldn't really spend any time on the Internet, I'm slowly getting better now.

Did someone really post something rude in my direction? I hope not, I wasn't trying to disappear it just happened.

I really have to apologize to @odroid and HK in general, due to unforseen issues mentioned above I really left them in the lurch. I'm so sorry but it was unforseen and unavoidable. I will make it right.

I'm suggesting a little bit more than the goodies--basically, star treatment (the excitement of an official contest plus the Meet an ODROIDian write-up).

Yes, any person of any age could get the goodies by writing an article and get the write-up in Meet an ODROIDian separately and without any fanfare, and I suppose technically Rob's selection process could be a "contest" in that he could reject all but one submission, but the idea is to raise the excitement level by drawing extra attention to the event and prestige to the one winner.

Increasing the size/cost of the prize could also raise the excitement level. It would take several mundane article submissions to, say, redeem one MC-1, but if they gave away one MC-1 to the winner of this contest, that will probably increase interest.

I will bring this up with Hardkernel and see if we can make this happen. I see a contest that encourages parents to do a project with their kids, rather than a kids-only project.

It might be nice to see integration with kids electronics kits like "little bits" or controlling motorized cars/train sets. Something in the 10-16 year age group.

Rob, take a look at the RPi Foundaton's Sense HAT "Astro Pi" contest for kids for an idea of how to structure and target and market the contest. Their "lure" was that the kids' winning projects would get put on the Int'l Space Station. ODROID's brand and connections aren't large enough to get the winner's project on the Space Station, but we've got to start somewhere!

You know what would be beneficial for kids/teens? Having completely documented projects in the magazine that they are able to implement with and odroid and household items. Kind of like those articles in the 80's/90s for BBC Micro and clones where they would dump a program for you to type in (without requiring too much understanding) and you would get a result onscreen (a fractal or something). Those helped popularize computers, though now that computers are popular you'd need something to hook kids onto SBCs, and they would need to fit a different role.
