Celebrate Hardware Freedom Day on April 20th 2013!
Let’s celebrate Hardware Freedom Day on 20th April 2013
Hardware Freedom Day is a yearly celebration of Open Hardware! Every year since 2004 hundreds of teams have been celebrating Software Freedom Day, often showcasing Open Hardware in the process. At the Digital Freedom Foundation (formerly known as SFI) we thought it was about time to have a special day just for Open Hardware. So get your hackerspace in order, your team up to speed and register your event right now!
Your organization believes hardware should be hackable and/or is deeply involved in Open Hardware. You believe that Hardware Freedom Day needs traction and are willing to help us with the promotional efforts by putting one of our web banners and countdown on your website.
Let us thank you for the help, as every contribution is important and follow that link for more details.
You love to hack all the gadgets you have a chance to put your hand on and/or are a member of a hackerspace?
The time has come to join all the other hackerspaces in the world and celebrate Hardware Freedom Day on April 20th: We have drafted a guide to get you started, simply register your event but don’t hesitate to join our mailing list and exchange ideas with others.
