Interview: Qi Hardware

,----[ Quote ]
| OB: Was Qi Hardware conceptualised from the 
| beginning as an Open Source project, and 
| could you describe what openness means 
| specifically in the case of hardware?
| SM: Yes Qi Hardware was conceptualized from 
| the start as an Open Source project. The 
| founders of Qi have spent the last 2 years 
| working together at Openmoko on the open 
| phone project so the benefits and 
| challenges of open source are well know to 
| us. On the hardware side we are going to 
| create a new kind of hardware, CopyLeft 
| hardware. Today you can join as a Qi 
| developer and get access to the hardware 
| design files as well as participate in 
| creating the roadmap.

| guides about the nuts and bolts of starting 
| an open source business." He lists seven 
| pieces of advice for those who have an open 
| source business in the works, and here are 
| some of our posts that can help you follow 
| the advice.

| tomorrow's Boston gathering, I will have an opportunity

| learn to learn and learn to love and exercise their
| freedom. I will also solicit your help.
