They say the first edition of magazine is always the best, because the writers have the longest time to prepare it. Thankfully this isn't a magazine.

Over the past few months I've been working with a few friends at MIT on a consumer hardware startup. More on that in a later post. Along the way I've collected some really helpful tools and advice that I find myself repeatedly emailing to friends at a similar stage. I'd like to use this blog to share those most-frequent-emails more broadly to give something back to the incredible community at MIT and beyond that has helped our team get to this point.

And inevitably the odd story or rant might find its way here too. I'm also using Twitter to share other blogs I found useful; follow me @johnehmac.
