This newsletter was released on March 4th, 2010.

This is a special edition of our newsletter, not a normal monthly newsletter. (If you're new, head to: to see what those look like.)

We're writing you today because there are less than 36 hours left for voting in the PayPal X Developer Challenge. We are one of 55 entries at this stage of the contest. The top 10 by popular vote will make it to the final round, which would give us the chance for more exposure and a shot at the $50,000 grand prize -- something that would certainly help NerdKits continue to develop top-quality educational electronics material.

It's going to be a close race to determine the top 10, and while many of you have already voted -- thanks!! -- a great many of you haven't, so we're asking for your help.

If you already have a PayPal account, voting is super-simple and will take you about a minute. If you don't, you can create one very quickly (no payment information needed), which might add one more minute -- please do this for us!

Please go to:

and follow the simple directions to vote. Thanks!

Voting ends tomorrow (Friday 3/05) at 11:59PM PST.

Don't hesitate to e-mail us if you have any issues with the voting process.

Pass this along to your friends -- we need all the help we can get!

Thanks for your time! We'll be back with a "normal" newsletter next month. There are some great customer projects brewing on the forums!
