Open Hardware Summit

Open Hardware Summit

I had the great opportunity to attend and speak the Open Hardware Summit at MIT in Sept of 2013, and meet and talk with all the major players in the Open Source Hardware world. The amount of talent and energy in that space that day was pretty incredible to experience, and I have to admit I was a bit nervous talking in front of 500 people that I admire so much. The talk I gave was on starting an Open Hardware company via crowdfunding, and after it started it actually went well. You can see a list of all of the speakers and get to the presentations at this link: http://2013.oshwa.org/schedule/

TinyCircuits was a sponsor for the event, and got to hand out 500 pieces of swag that got handed out to all of the participants. So we created a “tiny” version of the Open Hardware Logo as a PCB, with circuitry on it to make it an Arduino. It turned out great, and we ended up putting a small pin on it to wear on your shirt, or as a number of people did, as an earring.

This was the second Open Hardware Summit I attended, and definitely look forward to next year!
