Great idea, (wish such a thing had been easy to find years ago when I
first got interested in robotics), and don't forget to include the Saga
of Little YaTu to convey something of the "Art of Amateur Robotics"
development (shopping in Thrift Stores, Serendipitous Inspirations from
"found objects," late-night communing with the Hardware and Software
gods, etc. :-)  Really there is a tremendous resource in the DPRG
archives that could clearly accomplish some of the "Public Service"
mission of the club.
