But, if there is such a thing as negative geek or hacker cred, this would qualify. It isn't particularly novel, doesn't expose functionality in any interesting way, etc. I mean doing it in one thing, but youtubing the end product, and putting the source on github seems like overkill. Of course, this author is a guy who wrote a FAT library in AVR code (and then pitched it and modified a better FAT library to add LFN and FAT32 support) just so he could learn about the format. Maybe I should include myself in the same negative cred category.
