Full Interview: Limor Fried on Open Source Hardware. Spark – An ongoing conversation about technology and culture, hosted by Nora Young… (MP3 here too).

Making wearable computers? A booster for your iPhone made out of a mint box? It doesn’t get more DIY than this. Limor Fried is the founder an lead engineer at Adafruit Industries. She’s one of the leading forces behind the maker movement – people who like to alter technology to better it, or make electronics at home from scratch. And she’s particularly interested in making hardware that is open source.

  1. Thanks for sharing, your a good interviewee. 🙂

  2. I look forward to listening. CBC’s Spark is an awesome show, and I have a feeling this episode will be especially great.

  3. Great interview!

    Was Limor in Canada for this? If Limor’s ever in Toronto/Ottawa/Montreal in the future, we’d love to set up a speaking engagement at Artengine (www.artengine.ca) — keep in touch!
