On March 17th, 2010 a bunch of folks got together at an event at EYEBEAM called “Opening Hardware” … It was the start of many many things…

Title:
Opening Hardware: a workshop on legal tools for open source hardware

Date: Wednesday March 17th, 2010

Location:
Eyebeam center for Art and Technology,
540 west 21st street, between 10th and 11th avenue (closer to 11th)
closest subway: C or E at 23rd street
closest bus: M23 West bound
The door should be open, but if you have any problems getting in, please contact us at the numbers below

Time:
1:30pm to 7pm
There will be coffee and light snacks

Agenda:
1:30- 2:00 : Welcome and Intros by Ayah Bdeir and John Wilbanks
2:00-3:30: Teaching session on IP and open source by Thinh Nguyen and John Wilbanks, dialogue on possible standards for open source hardware licensing
3:30-4:00: Break
4:00-6:00: Lightly moderated interactive discussion and whiteboard exercise with the group
6:00-7:00: Cheese and wine wrap-up sponsored by Creative Commons

Organizers:
ayah, john, thinh and ted

After the meeting, STUFF happened. Within a few months there was a draft of the Open-source hardware definition (June 2010), and lots of folks started getting involved in the electronic’s industry. Hardware files and code started to get released more since it was define better as to what “open-source hardware” was and was not. CADSoft EAGLE (now owned by AutoDesk, agreed to do an XML export after many of us contacted them and outlined why it would be helpful for open-source hardware makers(October 2010).

I do not think open-source hardware would have taken off as much as it has over the last decade had it not been for this specific meeting and everyone who attended.

On the Eyebeam site the project/event is no longer listed and it’s not on the Wayback Machine either.

HOWEVER! I knew this was going to be a historic meeting so I scanned the paper handout, it’s above. Turns out a scan of a paper thing can last longer than a lot of website pages from 10 years ago.

There IS a Flickr photo group that has some of the photos, include the group photo above!


Open source hardware month @ Adafruit:


Ohm

October is open-source hardware month! Every single day in October we’ll be posting up some open-source stories from the last decade (and more!) about open-source hardware, open-source software, and beyond!

Have an open-source hardware (or software) success story? A person, company, or project to celebrate? An open-source challenge? Post up here in the comments or email opensource@adafruit.com, we’ll be looking for, and using the tag #OHM2019 online as well! Check out all the events going on here!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

Join 14,000+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community! http://adafru.it/discord

CircuitPython 2019!

Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7:30pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.

Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!
