Well considering the only people who identify themselves as 'Americans' (Pronounced: A-mur-i-cans) are United States citizens, I'm going to take a wild guess that he's talking about United States citizens.

Except your wrong, I've talked with some Guatemalans who consider themselves Americans.

And FYI, SparkFun Electronics, one of the companies listed, makes more than $10 million in annual revenue, which is some serious growth for one company in a new field. Couple that with sheer awesome, and you get a powerful combination.

I like SparkFun. I do buy stuff from them, but really they pretty much just a easier to use digikey or newark. Most of their designs that are "open" can be considered an unfavorable type of Open Source, since about all of them have the stipulation that they are not to be used for any commercial purposes. This seriously dampens what could be done with it. I can't take the design and code expand on it into a single board to use for my purposes and use it at work.. Nope unless I want to start from scratch I have to buy their breakout, and run wires. Doesn't quite seem like the open source spirit. Maybe the old unix open source spirit.

A family of beavers working together, and non of them got paid either I sure. How much you want to bet there was a bunch of lazy leftist pot smoking elitist beavers that just watched while the hard working god fearing beavers similar to you and me worked and put the whole thing together. This is an example of what happens when you have a democrat in office as president even the beavers up north are being affected.
