This is a great list! I keep finding myself amazed at the amount of talent
that is found in the area, and the diverse list of topics that interest people.
Thanks for sharing it.

I know none of those persons. But I did take the time to scout all the links
and took some notes to share:

She is impressive. Wrote her own bootloader, built a minimal Linux distro,
and is building her own unix-like kernel (for learning purposes) that leverages
on GNU software. Worth scouting her minimal pages.

> * https://blog.urth.org

Esoteric stuff for the most part, with a good reading habit (and taste),
where I found a nice list of books I read or interest me:

Yes. I remember talking to him. Not the same Eric who was at pizza, I think.
I found one link that caught my attention:
(I did not know about Idris, and now I do.)

There are a few persons I have met with similar interests, mostly IoT and
physical items hacking, lots of LEDs, etc. Fun stuff.

I think I found somebody to closely follow (audio interests, speech synthesis
software, mostly C programmer, and interests in AI). Thank you Joe for finding
this person for me.

Click on his resume to see some interesting commercial geekiness places.

Good stuff. Hardcore nerd (I say this in a good way.) Lots of CommonLisp
stuff that I would never write in LISP. There are some good math links and
content here.

> * http://n0bel.net

Good gardware stuff, like Ras Pi type projects and other hacks.

> * https://www.macktronics.com

Very compatible interests with people on this list. Lots of experience...
(Seems to live in my neighbourhood, judging from the food places listed.)
