It's Official

As with any type of branding, using the name Arduino or any derivative of it (like ZIFduino) on an Arduino-like project requires permission, especially if it's going to be a commercial project. I just heard back from the Arduino team, and they've given their blessing for me to use the name ZIFduino for the upcoming kits, along with some nice comments on the project in general. I was also told they have something else in the works that looks to be a pretty cool thing for the community at large, but I'll wait until they make an official announcement before saying anything. I will say that I intend to participate.
