I got to hang with Andy Piper this week, discussing making and learning. I haven't done much in the Internet of Things (IoT) space, so I enjoyed this one. Here's a highlight from the stream.

Thanks again for hanging Andy!

The stream recording with Matt McInnis is up on my YouTube channel. Loved this convo and the insights about ChatGPT.
