Holy cow...

So a week ago a writer for Wired.com contacted me about the fireflies, having found them through the Maker Faire. I exchanged a few emails with some details, and, well:

This is more than I'd ever hoped for! Just wow.

(Good thing our website is now live. As of last night, that is. Nothing like the last minute to give you heart failure.)

Woo-Hoo!

Maybe some hip home goods catalog will want to carry them. I can't wait to see them tomorrow.

I posted it to reddit gadgets; people are liking it, but one question has come up: what if it rains?

They are twice dipped in epoxy to provide weather resistance. We have let them out in the rain a few times with no ill effects, but don't recommend immersion.

If we have any spare brain cells, we will update the FAQ, since this certainly keeps coming up.
