Seems like the number of expert-answering community websites is flourishing. I just noticed the existance of chiphacker. Everything very interesting around here. Thus my question is:
- what about something on Robotics?
Rationale: I'm currently working on a robotics project myself (the iCub), which involves lots of coding (either embedded and c/c++; so something that should be discussed on stackoverflow), hardware issues (chiphacker), system issues (a-la serverfault), so on and so forth and some added spices such as svn problems, versioning (superuser.com?), wiki, naming issues, etc.
Plus, the robotics community usually gets lost around re-inventing the wheel (in terms of algorithms, frameworks, etc). You have no idea how much code is lost and re-coded, and the poor comments are just lost in the midst.
Furthermore, I think it would be cool to take the robotics folks out of academia and into the real world. Just a bit, you know, so that we can be ready for when the bots will take over and rule the world :)
If the idea is accepted we need a name..
