This is really nice!
There are a couple caviets to the msp430s at least one of which you
meantion in you I am crazy entry, otherwise I would certainly use them.
1. Small memory.
2. No dips.
You can program a $1.50 avr tiny45 in c as it has enough room for a
stack, and you can breadboard the whole family untill you get into
the 128s. Also this group has a mixed level of skills so you get
people using the Arduino to do their first projects (I use mine a lot
to rabid prototype before rewriting in c) so there are some other
reasons why the avr comes up a lot.
I would REALLY like to talk more about the RF stuff down the page.
Hope you can make it today.
