summit Open Hardware Summit Begins Its Ascent

The 3rd annual Open Hardware Summit is underway at Eyebeam in New York City. Wired editor-in-chief Chris Anderson kicked off the sold-out, standing room only event. The roster of speakers is stellar and includes our own Dale Dougherty and many folks from the pages of MAKE. Speakers come from all sectors of the open source hardware community, nonprofit groups, medical researchers, open source hardware companies, and academics. And of course the debate over MakerBot’s steps toward closed sourcing some of its tech is swirling in the air. Watch for MAKE’s coverage of the event and some of the issues it raises over the next few days.
