An open hardware definition has been mulling around in a few emails ever since the Opening Hardware Workshop, put on by Ayah Bdeir. Tonight, a draft of the definition was released as well as an announcement for an Open Hardware Summit to discuss everything about Open Hardware.

The Open Hardware Summit is currently looking for speakers and sponsors. And there are lots more ways to get involved of course. You can also give  your feedback on v0.3 of the Open Source Hardware Definition here: http://freedomdefined.org/OSHW

sewing
You want to sew, but don’t know how. You sort of know how to sew, but want to learn more from like-minded folks in a no-pressure environment. You want to hang out, work on your sewing or related projects, and get feedback or ideas on your stuff. You want new ideas and to branch out with your skills, to share skills, or just to learn some simple and practical sewing. Come to the sewing rebellion! It will be fun, no pressure, and you will walk away with new ideas and skills. Bring a project and a few supplies, you can borrow what you don’t have. Or, you might just get a great new idea from one of the easy and basic patterns we have on hand. Bring yourself, a garment to mend or alter, or something you don’t know what to do with. Collective creativity and skill-sharing will provide the rest!
Stop shopping, start sewing with us Sunday, July 26th from 4:30-7 pm, hosted by Amelia from the Sewing Rebellion!

cyber-surfers11

Think Geek sent us 7 boxes full of Cyber Surfers that needed to be “disposed of”.  We said no problem.  What are we doing with 20+ cyber surfers?  Having a helicopter war of course!  The rules are as follows:

  • The destruction will take place on Feb. 28th an hour before sunset. Don’t be late.
  • The location is still TBA
  • You must mod your chopper to be on a different frequency than the others, fly it on xbee or swap the crystal
  • If you are getting this post emailed to you – you know who you are and what your role is
  • Any way of destruction is acceptable as long as it doesn’t harm humans from 10 yards away
  • Be creative, the person who takes down the most other choppers wins
  • This is what the inside of your controller looks like, but you should already know that:

Srsly, don’t try this at home.  Unless you want to replace your OS with Linux (which is what you should want). And if that’s the case, mix this game with sapphire and tonic! Apply liberally.
