Robby Grodin, a computer science and music technology major at Northeastern University, built part of the software in Max/MSP during one of his classes yesterday. This morning, while listening to companies at Boston Music Hack Day present APIs for all the hackers to play with, Grodin asked via IRC who else wanted to build something with Max/MSP. Among those to respond was freelance hacker Lindsey Mysse, whose Texas Instruments EZ430 Chronos watch recently arrived following a lengthy back order. Their team quickly ballooned to a small de facto development group, which colonized a at Microsoft’s NERD Center in Boston. None of them expected to have the thing up and running so quickly.
