Open Hardware Summit – NYC 9/23/2010 #OSHW

Open Hardware SummitThe Open Hardware Summit will be a venue to present, promote and discuss the undergoing open source hardware movement. The summit will focus on hardware as a system, involving conversations on software, manufacturing, legal, and other factors surrounding open source hardware. It is taking place on September 23rd, at the New York Hall of Science – right before Maker Faire.

The Open Hardware movement is engaged in nailing down the definition, currently OSHW v.0.3, of the term open source hardware and producing a real, and enforceable license, much like the Creative Commons License does for artistic creations and the GPL does for software.
