For our ongoing research at [High-Low Tech](http://hlt.media.mit.edu) and my own thesis, there is a pre-and-post workshop survey that should be filled out. There'll be paper copies available, but filling it out online is quicker and easier!

If you've happened to stumble on this survey and *won't* be attending the workshop, make my life a little easier and don't fill it out!

The missing piece, here, is what the *other* end of the speaker is connected to. If one side is connected to drain -- the other side of your speaker should be connected to power. There are a variety of ingenious analogies that explain the way in which a MOSFET Works--controlling a valve, opening and closing a dam--but the more lucid ones escape me now. At any rate, suffice it to say, it allows the relative *weak* microcontroller signal to control a much more powerful flow of current directly from the battery. Which naturally enough, makes it a bit more of a ruckus.

[Jie Qi](http://technolojie.com/category/featured-projects/) has put up some useful information about making circuits using copper tape on the High-Low Tech [website](http://hlt.media.mit.edu/?p=2505). There's also good information about the orientation of surface-amount LEDs--which can be tricky to work with!

This is not really that useful for our purposes here--a hundred-odd pages of technical specifications. But it's interesting if you want to delve deeper into how people actually _understand_ these things. And the pin diagram is on the second page.

April 6 & 7 has come and gone, and people put together many lovely things. Here's a handful:
