As you may have noticed, there’s been some progress in the organization of the Open Hardware Summit 2014 that I’m co-chairing,

This years OHSummit will be about the transition “From Open Making to Open Manufacturing”. Our focus is to broaden the definition of what open hardware means: production models are shifting from one to one, to one to many structure. The way we think about our tools, transforms the electronics, houses, furniture- anything and everything we depend on.  How we live and relate depends on it.

Stay tuned and register!

The 2014 Open Hardware Summit is, for the first time ever, a two day event featuring speakers, keynotes, and workshops centred on the topic of the Open Source movement! This is the fifth year of the Summit and the first time it will be held outside the USA. What does that mean for attendees? You have the chance to come to Rome and attend multiple awesome events in the span of a few days,  from 28 September to 5 October for lnnovation Week!

Open Hardware Summit is part of Innovation Week Rome:
