This podcast is worth listening to. Even though it's about an hour and a half long: [The Amp Hour with Nadya Peak](http://www.theamphour.com/208-an-interview-with-nadya-peek-gallant-gcode-gerontology/) Nadya discusses the irrelevance of G-code, the annoyances with machines that make and modular/reconfigurable machines.

Interesting! She tries the same problem as we try to solve, but... I think we solve it better... Tosqa for example doesn't require a virtual machine on a user's computer... and we have a web interface. She does confirms my suspicion that it's interesting for (small scale) automation in general. Nadya Peek's lecture at SolidCon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPp-PV3Cfq4 http://solidcon.com/solid2014/public/schedule/detail/33389 Some info about her virtual machine network project: http://fab.cba.mit.edu/classes/S62.12/people/nadya.peek/vm.html We should ask her to join the project, maybe we can help each other.
