The 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.
Open source hardware has a growing community around it - enough that we figured would fill a moderately-sized lecture hall. Together we are revolutionizing the method, processes and means in which electronics are made, and a lot of us have been doing this for several years now. Mentoring and sharing are always an important piece to any open source project, so our goal is to have an entire day filled with mentoring and sharing of knowledge about the open hardware industry, how we aim to license open source hardware, and why it is an important charge to lead.

I'd like to thank Ayah Bdeir for co-chairing the event with me, we both hope to see you there!
