Open source hardware round up…

We’ll add more posts as the definition makes the rounds today!

What’s the definition of “Open Source Hardware?” – And why on earth do they have to make its acronym “OSHW” for Open Source Hard Ware?
Do they somehow expect OSWW Open Source Wet Ware?

Open Source hardware advocates want a hard-core license – Within one day of the release of a definition for “open source” hardware, the document has garnered endorsements from 50 people, many of them affiliated with manufacturing businesses. The document is only in its 0.3 draft version, so it’s likely to change before being finalized.

AN OPEN SOURCE HARDWARE (OSHW) group has published an updated draft definition. It has issued version 0.3 to give developers guidelines when evaluating licenses for OSHW.

Slashdot – Open Source Hardware Definition Hits 0.3.

開源硬體社群大憲法草案制訂、公布! – 開源軟體大家都很熟,開源硬體或許就沒那麼受到大家的關注,一如咱們曾經提過的 Chumby、Adafruit 的 Monochron 等等的產品,都是屬於所謂的開 源硬體。

Open Source Hardware Definition 0.3 Released by Bunnie. There’s been a flurry of blog posts today about the new Open Source Hardware Definition, which is currently on rev 0.3 (link), and a corresponding summit in NYC… It’s very exciting to see the open source hardware movement maturing to the stage where there is a flourishing and fecund community of participating innovators. As many of my readers know, I’m very fond of open source hardware and it’s nice that the field is getting less lonely and more credible by the day.

Hardware history in the making – 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.

Open Source Hardware Definition released, first Open Hardware Summit in NYC, Sept 23 by Cory Doctorow. The Open Source Hardware folks are making progress toward a unified movement. Today, they announced the first public draft of the “Open Source Hardware Definition” (mirroring OSI’s Open Source Definition, which sets limits on what is and isn’t open), and announced the first Open Hardware Summit in NYC for Sept 23.

OSHW and design tools – Finally, there’s some movement towards a unified concept of what “open source hardware” really is. Adafruit has posted their opinion on the matter for some time, and there have even been a couple of attempts to make an actual license to cover it.

Advancing open hardware with a few clear words by EMSL – Over the last few years we’ve been excited to be part of the rapidly growing open-source hardware community. One of the recurring issues in this community has been the lack of agreement on what constitutes an acceptable license for open hardware.

Draft Licence for Open Source Hardware published – A number of well known developers from the open source hardware scene have published a draft of a new licence under the name of Open Source Hardware (OSHW) for free hardware projects.

Announcing the Open Hardware Summit by Alicia Gibb – Bug Labs is excited to announce the Open Hardware Summit in conjunction with MAKE, and Creative Commons, and a little help from our friends at NYSCI, littleBits and Eyebeam!

Open Hardware Summit, Sept 23, 2010 by Tom Igoe. So what exactly is open source hardware?  We’re getting closer to a consensus definition, thanks to Ayah Bdeir and Eyebeam.

Open source hardware defined by credit By Dana Blankenhorn. The idea is that innovations should build communities, innovators should get credit, but that the innovations themselves should be available. Just as with open source.
