Open Source Hardware at TEDx

Just before Christmas I was lucky enough to go to TEDxPlaceDesNations, where Javier Serrano from the open hardware group at CERN gave a fantastic talk about the benefits of using open source hardware.

You can see the talk in it's entirety right here.

The Fab10 Documentary

In July 2014 I went to the 10th annual gathering of FabLabs.  I wanted to see if a FabLab was a useful tool for building a new way to manufacture open source hardware.  This documentary gives you an overview in 35 minutes of what I spent 8 days immersed in.  And, yes, I came back to Geneva convinced I should build an ecological FabLab.
